The Greek Police, or ELAS, apparently purchased more than 900 thousand Euros worth of tear gas canisters and chemical grenades last Thursday, one day after violent rioting in the centre of Athens, a report in Kathimerini said on Monday. 

The chemicals, some 10,000 items posted on the tvxs website, were bought from Israel, France and the United States.

Athens first instance prosecutor Eleni Raikou has launched a probe following complaints by the head of the pharmacies’ union regarding the extensive use of tear gas in last week’s anti-austerity rally.The president of the Association of Pharmacies of Attica, Konstantinos Lourantos, has described the police’s behavior as “criminal.”
