Police investigates websites offering “legal protection against Covid-measures” to anti-vaxxers



Minister of Citizens’ Protection Takis Theodorikakos ordered an investigation into websites and social media accounts that spread fake information about the pandemic and offer fake legal advise to anti-vaxxers in exchange for money.


The investigation order was sent to the head of the police’s Department for Electronic Crime, Vassilis Papakostas, with instructions for all findings concerning specific social media pages and groups who are suspected of disseminating information that may pose a risk to public health to be forwarded to a prosecutor.


“We need to investigate who is hiding behind these websites,” the minister told Ant1 TV on Saturday morning.


Theorodirakos mentioned a specific scam claiming to offer legal advise and protection to anyone who does not want to comply with the protection measures against the pandemic.
