Measures taken to combat crime and ensure the public’s’ safety are constantly evaluated for their effectiveness, government spokesman Konstantinos Letymbiotis said on Sunday.

“Measures are taken constantly, which are evaluated on a daily basis,” Letymbiotis told reporters after a memorial service he attended in Emba.

Asked to comment on the increase crime and recent spat of gangland attacks, Letymbiotis said the government’s goal is to ensure public safety and the feeling of security to the public.

“We will continue to exert every effort, in cooperation with the police, to evaluate the effectiveness of all measures.”
