University rectors support anti-violence policing plan

University rectors in Greece approve of a plan to crack down on violence at universities that was unveiled on Monday 2 November by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, writes Apostolos Lakasas for Kathimerini.

“The prime minister’s initiative to invite the council and clarify that the state stands firmly by our side opposite every act of violence was very correct,” the rector of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Nikos Papaioannou, told Kathimerini after the council of university rectors convened on Tuesday 3 November.
