    [06] November 17th trial continues without Savvas Xiros

    The November 17th terrorist trial is continuing without defendant Savvas Xiros, who walked out yesterday, after the court rejected his motion for his pre-trial confession to be disregarded. Earlier today, it was decided that he would not be forced to attend.

    His brother and fellow defendant, Christodoulos Xiros has also called for the withdrawal of his pre-trial confession, claiming that he was under severe psychological duress and threatened by the presence of armed men from the anti-terrorist squad. The court's ruling on the motion is expected tomorrow.
