The Greek newspaper Eleftheri Ora has been served a formal complaint by the Greek partner of Get The Trolls Out, Symbiosis.

The Greek newspaper Eleftheri Ora has been served a formal complaint by the Greek partner of Get The Trolls Out, Symbiosis. The complaint relates to an article printed in Eleftheri Ora on May 22, 2018 in which it states that the Greek government is considering granting voting rights to immigrants living permanently in Greece.

Mixing and matching the notions of immigrants and refugees, the article says that refugees on Greek territory (via Greek islands) from the Middle East are not Syrians fleeing from suffering and war but Muslims and Islamic extremists from Pakistan, Afghanistan and other parts of the Middle East.  Symbiosis criticized Eleftheri Ora use of disinformation, lack of sources and its use of anti-Muslim rhetoric. We are awaiting a response from the newspaper.
