A well-known reporter covering police issues was gunned down outside his home in Alimos suburb of southern Athens, in the broader daylight early afternoon Friday. Giorgos Karaivaz was murdered with 6 bullets as he was returning home after work around 2 o’ clock noon.
A manhunt is underway for the suspects, who fled the scene.
Karaivaz, 53, was one of the most prominent reporters covering the law enforcement beat in the country, both in print and broadcast media such as private Star TV and was running a website on police matters.
Some months ago, an attempt against publisher Stefanos Chios took place.
