True to his word Mr Fabricant did table the questions , these are the questions and replies :
Michael Fabricant (Lichfield, Conservative)To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what reports he has received on Operation Zeus in Greece; and what discussions he has had with the Greek government concerning the treatment of EU nationals affected by this operation.

KT is still concerned about this story, when a country is in chaos like Greece the rights of minorities can easily be brushed aside!
KT would also like to thank Mr Fabricant for keeping his word and taking time out to ask the minister of this concern (despite this blog publishing Mr Fabricants embarrassing "Cock Up" the following day), Thank you Mr Fabricant :)
