Trial of Briton Andrew Symeou delayed again

The trial of Andrew Symeou, a British man accused of causing the death of a fellow tourist on Zakynthos in July 2007, was postponed for a third time on Thursday, this time due to a lawyers? strike.

Symeou has denied causing fatal injuries to Jonathan Hiles after allegedly punching him at a Zakythnos nightclub.

The trial, which had been due to begin on March 4, was first delayed after a lawyer for Hiles?s family requested an extension and was postponed a second time after the court accepted Symeou?s request to appoint a new interpreter.
