New Democracy (ND) expressed its sadness on Thursday over the killing of prominent lawyer Mihalis Zafiropoulos.

Zafiropoulos was the son of former New Democracy MP Nontas Zafiropoulos. He was shot and killed in his office by unknown individuals. Police arrived swiftly on the scene and are investigating the crime.

Party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis cancelled the presentation of ND’s new communications staff which was scheduled for Friday.
