Greek Police Union Seeks Arrest Warrants for EU, ECB Officials

The Greek police officers’ union called for arrest warrants to be issued for European Union, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund officials negotiating austerity measures for a national debt bailout.

The Greek Federation of Police Officers said in a published letter it will ask for arrest warrants for former European Commission representative Servaas Deroose, the IMF’s Poul Thomsen and the ECB’s Klaus Masuch. Under Greek law, arrest warrants must be issued by an appellate court prosecutor, a police spokesman in Athens said today, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with official regulations.

“We warn you that we will demand, as legal representatives of the Greek police according to Greek law, that warrants for your arrest are immediately issued,” according to the letter published on the union’s website.

The police union accuses officials of the so-called troika -- which is negotiating austerity measures in Greece in exchange for a second bailout -- of extortion, promoting the elimination of Greece’s democracy and national sovereignty and insulting the country.
