The building where the former headquarters of the infamous Special Interrogation Sections of the Military Police (EAT-ESA) was housed will not be sold through the privatization fund but will be turned into a museum, State Minister Alekos Flambouraris said.

“Not only is the building of the former EAT-ESA headquarters not for sale, but it will be turned into a Museum of Anti-Dictatorial Resistance with state funds,” he said in a statement.

“It is the least the government can do for a place where young men and women martyred during the seven-year dictatorship, but also citizens of all ages who claimed freedom and democracy.”

The minister was responding to a press report claiming that the building, located at Eleftherias Park, on Vassilissis Sofias Avenue, will be passed on to the privatization fund. Numerous political opponents of the Junta were arrested and brutally tortured in the building which was closed down after the fall of the dictatorship.(Source: ANA-MPA)
