Filopoulos killers get between 10 and 16 years in jail

Four people implicated in the killing of a 26-year-old Panathinaikos fan before a women?s volleyball match with rival Olympiakos in Paiania, eastern Attica, in March 2007, were Thursday given jail terms ranging from 10 to 16 years following a prosecutor?s appeal against their original sentences.

Christos Sakatis had his life sentence reduced to 16 years due to his drug addiction after serving five years. Vassilis Roubetis, who had originally been exonerated, was given a 12-year sentence.

Nikos Vagiopoulos and Vassilis Psychakos were given 10-year terms.
