Greek broadcaster which was shut down 'will carry on'

Police in Greece have moved into the headquarters of the former national broadcaster, ERT, and begun evicting staff.

Almost 3,000 people lost their jobs in May but have continued to broadcast from the building.

Speaking to the Today programme, Nikos Korovelas, a former ERT journalist, said: "I took the police around the building so they can see to show them nothing has happened.

"Everything is in place, there is no damages. They said it was okay, I went to get my stuff and now I'm still here in the building."

Mr Korovelas revealed he plans to carry on broadcasting, even though the police have shut ERT down, because he believes in "democracy" and added: "What's happened here is unequal."

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 7 November 2013.
