Court documents reveal ages, backgrounds of arrested protestors

The ages of the 79 people arrested during rioting in central Athens on Sunday range between 14 and 47, according to court documents seen by Kathimerini.

Dozens of businesses were burned and looted during the disturbances that occurred while Parliament voted on the terms of Greece?s new bailout. There was also an attempt by protestors to storm City Hall, which led to 24 of the 79 arrests.

Of those arrested 53 are Greeks and 26 foreigners. Although 39 suspects refused to declare their occupation, it appears they represent a wide range of backgrounds as 15 said they were unemployed, 11 were private sector employees, two were self-employed, four were students and two were construction workers. Another four were a lecturer, a trainee lawyer, a taxi driver and a filmmaker.
