Veteran leftist and resistance fighter Manolis Glezos has died at the age of 98.
He died of heart failure, according to reports.
An active opponent of Greece's resistance to the Nazis, Glezos is best known for tearing down the Nazi flag from the Acropolis in 1941 as occupying German forces conquered Athens.
The events of early 2015, when SYRIZA was negotiating austerity terms with Greece's creditors, stole the limelight again yesterday in Parliament, with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stressing the need for a public discussion on what exactly happened in the first half of 2015 when SYRIZA came to power and negotiated Greece's bailout.
The conservative government has attacked SYRIZA opposition for criticizing Tuesday's meeting between Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and US President Donald Trump in Washington as a "fiasco."
"When the prime minister is fighting to defend the national interests, at a crucial timing, seriousness is needed," government sources said.
