The announcement of ND in detail
Supporters of terrorism and the serial killer are constantly attacking parliamentarism. Today, they threatened the physical integrity and life of New Democracy MP Mr. Bogdanou and his wife by hitting their house and cars with a double explosive device. Mr. Bogdanos' car was completely destroyed and miraculously there were no casualties. Attacks of this kind against members of the Greek Parliament are directed against the Republic and we expect the unanimous condemnation of the murderous attack by the entire political system.

The organized state will do whatever it takes to bring the perpetrators to justice.
