Extensive Damages During Christmas Holidays in Athens University

by Aggelos Skordas - Dec 30, 2014

The Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the National and
Kapodistrian University of Athens (UoA) suffered extensive vandalism on
Friday, December 26, between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. During that day the
building was closed and unguarded due to the Christmas bank holiday.

Some 40 office doors were violated and offices damaged. In most cases the
contents of the offices had been scattered on the floor, while yesterday a
systematic registration of the stolen equipment and restoration of
extensive damage was held. The university’s staff say there is a huge
problem with the building’s security resulting in repeated vandalism.

The Department of Informatics and Telecommunications is not guarded on
Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays due to the lack of adequate security
guards. Since March 2014 the Department has been violated and vandalized
numerous times and equipment of around 180,000 euros has been stolen,
without taking into account the cost of repairing the extensive damages.

In a staff announcement it was emphasized that due to the government’s
education policy the University of Athens has abolished most of its
security guards.
