Police beat up and arrest three migrants when checking their documents

20:00 Mar 12 2014 Monastiraki, Avissynias Square, Athens 105 55, Greece

We witnessed brutal and unprovoked violence by police forces against two immigrants who were in the square.

Cops beat an immigrant while he tried to show his residence permit, insisting on his immediate transfer to the police station. The situation got worse when one of the undercover cops dragged the immigrant hitting him and kicking him all along the square up across the street where a blue car was parked. Despite the fact that people witnessing the incident asked for the ID of the police and the reason of the adduction, nobody gave information both on the identity of the policeman and the identity of the migrant.

To support and to defend the undercover cops a DELTA group arrived shouting and threatening the assembled people who were trying to intervene. Then a third immigrant was arrested because he was trying to find out where the cops were leading the two friends of his. They were all taken to Acropolis police station.
