New York, July 19, 2010—The Committee to Protect Journalists is outraged by today’s murder in Athens of Sokratis Giolias, 37, director of the private radio station Thema 98.9 and contributor to the popular online news blog Troktiko. CPJ urges Greek police to thoroughly investigate the killing.

At least two men reportedly dressed in police or security uniforms shot Giolias, left, after luring him out of his apartment in the Ilioupolis suburb of Athens at around 5 a.m., claiming his car was being stolen, according to regional and international news reports.
