Court staff walkouts to disrupt trials

Proceedings at courts around the country will be disrupted this week as court staff stage daily three-hour walkouts to protest changes to civil servants? salaries that will reduce their income.

The walkouts ? to be held from noon to 3 p.m. on Monday through Friday ? are expected to slow down the dispensation of justice in courts that are already burdened by a backlog of tens of thousands of cases.

Protesting court employees have planned a demonstration for 1 p.m. on Wednesday when they are to gather outside the Athens Court of First Instance.
