Immediately following the post on Wednesday night, the Head of the District Attorney of Athens Mrs Panagiota Lenses attended an emergency meeting along with prosecutors Ioannis Sakelakos and Mr. K. Tzavelas from the Counter-terrorism Office. The Electronic Crime department of the Greek police will probe the posting to see if any laws have been broken.

Among the fifteen demands is the seizure of German owned businesses in Greece until Germany pays compensation to Greece for damages caused during World War II.
