Statement By Eugene T. Rossides, AHI General Counsel, On The Murder Of British Defense Attache

"On behalf of the American Hellenic Institute and all its members, I express my strongest abhorrence and condemnation of the murder in Athens on June 8, 2000 of British Defense Attaché Brigadier Stephen Saunders. I would like to convey my deepest sympathy to his family.

The Greek government has made a firm commitment to bring the perpetrators of this terrible crime to justice. I welcome this commitment and urge the Greek government to spare no efforts to bring about a speedy arrest of those responsible."
