Recreational & Hard Drugs in Greece Page 3

This exemplifies the frustration many feel with the corrupt politicians and police in Greece and in lots of other countries too for that matter. I love those fancy suits and expensive cars they wear and drive though. Greece, with its Socialist Government, is pretty low on my list of highly ethical and moral countries.

All, or at least a large percentage of the students, cheat in school too. I cant honestly say I never cheated in school but not the way these kids do. Maybe it became ingrained due to 400 years of trying to outwit the Turks during the occupation but didn't that end almost 200 years ago? Hello?

Lying is so bad in Greece that the government taxes you not on what you declare but on what they can prove you own or the square meters you rent to live in or conduct business from and the kind of car you drive. Its the Napoleonic Code too; where you are guilty until proven innocent! This is called Andikimenika Kritieria. The "Specific Criteria" of tax appraisal.

Drugs suspect shot dead in car (Kathimerini Newspaper)

A suspected drug dealer was shot dead and his companion injured in a shootout between police and heroin traffickers in northern Greece early yesterday.

The gunfight broke out during a sting operation in which an undercover Thessaloniki drug squad officer had arranged to buy half a kilo of heroin from gangsters in the Vale of Tempe, where five drug dealers turned up in two cars. Police sprang the trap as the transaction was taking place, but the suspects managed to drive away. Some time later and several kilometers away, Larissa traffic police spotted a car that had gone off the road. The 27-year-old driver had died of gunshot wounds, while his 20-year-old female passenger was injured. Their names were not made public. Meanwhile, Athens businessmen Constantinos Sahas, 50 — who owns luxury restaurants in Myconos and in Athens’s upmarket Kolonaki area — Theodoros Kostiroglou, 60, Harilaos Harakas, 51, and Athanassios Koutoudis, 54, were charged on Saturday with trafficking in cocaine.
