ATHENS – Saying they are targets, Greece’prosecutors’ union said it’s dismayed the government is planning to cut back on police VIP guards.

The union said the new Radical Left SYRIZA government should ensure that all judicial officials have adequate police protection after Alternate Minister for Citizens’ Protection Yiannis Panoussis said that he would reduce the number of policemen assigned to security details.

“Due to the special nature of our duties and the public position we hold, the state must adopt special measures to ensure the protection of judicial officials, drawing a distinction with the guarding of other public figures or potential targets who may have the ability to maintain their own personal security,” the union said.

The policy reverses that of former Premier and New Democracy Conservative leader Antonis Samaras who upped protection for high-profile targets after terrorists said they would go after judges, prosecutors, judicial officials, journalists, business executives and politicians.
