  • [01] Trial of policemen accused of shooting death of teen adjourned to Friday

  • [01] Trial of policemen accused of shooting death of teen adjourned to Friday

    The trial of two special guards charged in the killing of a 15-year-old pupil in the Exarhia district of Athens during an incident was adjourned to Friday shortly after it opened on Wednesday in the city of Amfissa, central Greece.

    Police officers Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vassilis Saraliotis are standing trial for the shooting death of pupil Alexis Grigoropoulos on the night of December 6, 2008 during an incident in Exarhia that sparked an unprecedented month of urban rioting in Athens and in major cities across the country.

    Korkoneas, a 37-year-old father of three, faces charges of intentional homicide with possible malice and illegal use of a weapon, while his 32-year-old partner Saraliotis is charged with complicity.

    Petitions for a few days' postponement of the trial were submitted by both Korkonea's defense team and by the prosecution on behalf of the slain teenager's family.

    Korkoneas is represented by high-profile criminal lawyer Alexis Kouyas, an associate of whom stated in court that the defense attorney is unable to attend the procedure as he is appearing at another important trial on the island of Lesvos.

    Kouyas is the prosecution attorney in the appeal trial of a former bouncer at a club on the island of Mykonos who charged with intentional homicide in the death of 20-year-old Australian tourist Doujon Zammit outside the nightclub n late July 2008, and is due to present his argument in court on Wednesday.

    On the part of the teen's family, attorneys Alexandros Katsantonis and Christos Mylonopoulos submitted a similar petition given that Grigoropoulos' maternal grandmother, Haiti Tsalikian, was in hospital with complications following surgery. Through their lawyers, the teen's mother and sister asked for a few days' postponement so as to be at the grandmother's side and later testify at the trial.
