ATHENS – The Greek police union POASY said Parliamentary Speaker Zoe Constantopoulou interfered with an officer who was trying to keep protesters from getting into the building.

Constantopoulou, whose ruling Radical Left SYRIZA party has been accused of disrespecting law-and-order, berated a police officer who said he was just doing his job when she approached hin during a demonstration.

“It is clear that such actions do not serve our primary goal, which is to improve the relationship between the police and the public,” said POASY, which represents some 40,000 police personnel.

The statement said she compounded the stereotype of police as the people’s enemy instead of trying to protect her and other lawmakers.

She said she was attempting to ensure that Parliament would not be seen as hostile towards citizens and accused the media of distorting her actions, although she didn’t say what would happen if they got into the building.

“When cancer sufferers did not have medicines, when there were no drugs at hospitals, some TV stations were not paying their taxes,” she added as part of her confusing attack on the media.
