Prosecutor calls for guilty verdicts for four Marfin officials

A prosecutor in the trial over the deaths of three people in the 2010 firebombing of a Marfin Egnatia branch in central Athens wants four defendants, all senior staff, to be declared guilty of manslaughter and bodily harm.

During a session of the three-member magistrate’s court on Monday, the prosecutor said that the defendants – the director of the branch and her deputy, the bank’s CEO and the building’s chief security officer – should be found guilty because in spite of previous attacks and warnings they had failed to take the requisite safety measures. All the defendants refuted the charges. A verdict is expected in the next few days.

Three banks workers died when the building was set on fire during anti-austerity protest in the capital in May 2010.
