Greece: Nikos Maziotis, Pola Roupa and Kostas Gournas (members of Revolutionary Struggle) all released on bail pending the beginning of their trial

A few minutes ago, the juridical council in Athens ordered the release on bail of Nikos Maziotis, Pola Roupa and Kostas Gournas, all members of the Revolutionary Struggle. Their bail conditions include signing off at a local police station every five days, while they are banned from exiting the Attica (Greater Athens) prefecture. The three had reached the limit of the 18-month pre-trial detention permitted by law; their trial was postponed yesterday for October 24, due to lawyers’ participation to the 24-hour General Strike.
