ATHENS – The President of Athens Technical College (TEI), Michalis Bratakos, said on Dec. 4 that he was assaulted by a group of students who entered his office by force.

He said the students, who were not identified, were protesting in support of jailed anarchist Nikos Romanos who is on hunger strike in demand that he be granted a furlough to attend courses at the college after passing entrance exams.

It is not up to Bratakos to decide whether Romanos can be let out of jail to come to college but the students chose his office to make a demonstration of their anger.

Bratakos said that he was signing graduation certificates when the students forced their way into his office and began shouting at him to get out.

Bratakos claims that when he refused their demand they used force against him and threw the certificates he was working on onto the floor of an adjacent room.

It’s common in Greece for college students to break into offices and occupy premises without any repercussions against them.
