Ex-judge freed after serving three-fifths of sentence

Evangelos Kalousis, a former judge jailed in 2009 in Amfissa, central Greece, for being a member of a trial-fixing ring, has been freed after serving three-fifths of his sentence, authorities said on Thursday.

Kalousis was originally given a 20-year jail sentence but this was reduced to 12 years after the former judge appealed the verdict.
