Greek Rich Men To Pay For Their Protection Against Terror Attacks

Cash-strapped Greece has proposed a new law that requires rich men to pay for to protect themselves from terrorists.

The Public Order Ministry says wealthy citizens will have to pay 2000 euros (about N426,000) per month for each officer acting as a bodyguard and a daily fee of 50 euros for use of a patrol car.

Private citizens currently receiving police protection include prominent businessmen and journalists who have been repeatedly threatened by anarchist groups.

There has been a resurgence of attacks lately amid growing public hostility toward those, whether in the public or private sector, seen as corrupt and incompetent and blamed for Greece’s economic crisis.
