Police Stop Planned Attack on Greek Shipowners

Police Stops Planned Attack on Greek Shipowners

The Hellenic Police have foiled a possible attack on the Union of Greek Shipowners, and Evangelos Marinakis, Capital Product Partners Chairman, the International Business Times reports.

The plans for a bomb attack reportedly scheduled for this weekend were discovered during a police raid in Athens. The police arrested one suspect on terror-related charges, believed to be a member of a far-left militant group.

According to the Greek authorities, the main targets of the attack would have been the New Democracy party headquarters in Athens, and various shipowners, including Marinakis, who apart from being Capital Product Chairman, also chairs over Greece’s industry federation, as well as Olympiakos, Greece’s largest football club.

The raid was reportedly carried out in connection with the arrest of Nikos Maziotis, a fugitive militant who was caught in Athens after a shootout back in July, 2014.
