Today the cops on trial for the beating of a young man in Thessaloniki last November following the commemoration of the 1973 Athens Polytechnic Uprising were given suspended sentences and released, despite video evidence clearly showing the brutality of their assault upon Augustinos Dimitrios. The leniency of the court caused an angry response from local people gathered outside.
Last Friday in south London the jury at the inquest into the 2005 killing of Jean Charles de Menezes by British police refused to return a verdict of lawful killing.
Two Saturdays ago, Greek cop Epaminondas Korkoneas – assisted by colleague Vassilis Saraliotis – shot and killed fifteen year old Alexis Grigoropoulos.
The insurrection in Greece continues.
