  • [01] Court rejects bid to stop showing of Da Vinci Code

    An Athens first instance court on Thursday expectedly threw out a motion by a member of a fundamentalist Orthodox Christian organisation requesting a temporary injunction against the screening of the film "The Da Vinci Code", which premieres in Athens movie theatres on Thursday.

    More than 100,000 tickets have already be pre-sold in movie theatres around the east Mediterranean and predominately Orthodox Christian nation, by far a record.

    The motion was discussed in court on Wednesday and was attended by members of several fundamentalist Christian organisations and Old Calendarist clergy.

    Representatives of the groups, upon learning of the court's decision on vowed to continue protests outside the movie theatres showing the film.
