I myself and my Greek husband have been the victim of a police motor cycle unit intimidation in Megara,six young policemen on three bikes with hands on their guns demanded to see what money we had with us,we had to open up everything,all the tools in our boot,my bag,they were very threatening and obviously were going to rob us,when we would have gone to report it they would not believe us and the riders would say that they had never ever seen us before.It was a lonely road with no people around as witness.Luckily we had only ten euro for some petrol to get home to Athens,they were obviously wanting more than that.
Cops being robbers. Pathetic.
