Hellenic Police to introduce four new measures for handling domestic violence

Citizen Protection Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis had an online meeting with over 2,500 police officers on Friday, on the issue of domestic violence.
According to sources, Chrisochoidis asked the officers to deal with each problem as if it was their own and to put themselves in the victims' shoes. "The citizens want and should feel safe when they come to us. In any incident of domestic violence, we are obliged to do our best to make women feel safe and make sure that before they leave the police station, that they will continue to be safe," the minister underlined.

White House celebrates Greek Independence Day

The annual Greek Independence Day reception was held at the White House on Thursday. This is a special honour given by the US government to Greece, as the Greek-American and Irish communities are the only national groups in the US to celebrate their national anniversary at the White House every year. This particular event, in addition to its strong communicative character, offers a first-class opportunity to the Greek-American community to convey messages to the US political leadership.
