  • [01] Policemen remanded in custody

    Two special guards involved in the killing of 15-year-old pupil Alexis Grigoropoulos in the Athens district of Exarchia on Saturday night were remanded in custody pending trial, following their testimonies before the 9th regular investigator on Wednesday.

    The 37-year-old accused of homicide claimed in his testimony that he "fired two warning shots in the air, being together with his colleague in a state of fear since they had been attacked with stones, pieces of wood and other items by a group of 30 anarchists."
