A 50-year-old lecturer from the University of Thessaly is facing assault charges after one of his students claimed that he hit her. The 20-year-old woman was allegedly attacked at the university in Volos, central Greece, on Thursday night. She was treated for minor injuries in the hospital and then pressed charges against the lecturer, saying that he struck her in the face in his office. The educator denied the claims and filed defamation charges against the student. Their cases are due to be heard in a Volos court today.
