Policemen to go on trial over actions during June 2011 anti-austerity protest

Eighteen policemen are due to stand trial on Monday for putting citizens’ safety at risk during anti-austerity protests in Athens on June 29, 2011.

According to Eleftherotypia newspaper, the police officers, members of the MAT anti-riot and motorcycle-riding DIAS squads, face charges of causing grievous bodily harm and exposing citizens to danger.

The case file notes the types of injuries, particularly those to the head, suffered by protesters that day and also contains evidence that the police failed to help injured protesters.

It also contains evidence that suggests police officers threw rocks and made excessive use of tear gas.

The protest in Syntagma Square was organized to coincide with MPs debating and voting on the mid-term fiscal plan, which introduced a new round of spending cuts.
