Greek police tortures "by mistake" (The Week, GUE group): "Thursday night, Dimosthenis Papadatos, a member of Synaspismos and editor of "Red Notebook" web portal, was arrested by a group of 15 undercover members of the Greek Anti-Terror Service (all wearing full-face masks), as suspected member of the terrorist organization "Cosnpiracy of Fire Cores", while walking on a street in the district of Vyronas in Athens. He was badly beaten, and then taken to the Anti-Terror Service Headquarters, where they threw him in a dark room, undressed him and interrogated him. Eventually, a spokesman of the Anti-Terror Service announced to him that he had been arrested by mistake, because of his facial characteristics' resemblance with one of the wanted terrorists and released him."
