Sk­ouries trial.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The trial of 21 peo­ple who have been ac­cused of tak­ing part in an ar­son at­tack on a gold mine in Halkidiki, north­ern Greece, four years ago has been put off un­til Novem­ber. A Thes­sa­loniki court yes­ter­day ac­cepted the re­quest for a post­pone­ment by a lawyer rep­re­sent­ing some of the de­fen­dants due to health prob­lems. Dozens of Halkidiki res­i­dents had gath­ered out­side the court­house to ex­press sup­port for the sus­pects, who have been ac­cused of at­tack­ing the Hel­las Gold mine in Sk­ouries. Most of the de­fen­dants are from the vil­lage of Ieris­sos. They face charges that in­clude at­tempted mur­der, form­ing a crim­i­nal gang, rob­bery and caus­ing an ex­plo­sion.
