Amnesty International defines the investigation of Konstantina Kouneva’s attack as insufficient and calls for the Greek authorities to do their job professionally. The Bulgarian was attacked in front of her home on December 23rd, by two unknown men who splashed acid into her face. The woman has been recovering for three months and is still in bad condition in Evangelismos hospital.

The human rights organization is worried because the primary investigation focused on non-essential details of Konstantina’s personal life and it did not take into consideration her syndicate activity as a possible motif for her attack. Amnesty International invites all Greek citizens to sign an open letter to the Minister of Internal Affairs Prokopis Pavlopoulos, which will be given to him on May 1st. the letter can be signed online in the organization’s website

The open letter insists that the Minister should guarantee that the investigation of Konstantina’s attack will be detailed, unbiased, and objective. It asks the Greek police to find the cruel criminals as soon as possible and to give them in the hands of the court. Amnesty International wants the Greek government to compensate the hurt syndicate member and to guarantee the right of syndicate and union members.
