Eight prison guards from Nigrita jail in northern Greece are due to appear before a magistrate on Saturday as part of the investigation into the death of inmate Ilie Kareli, who was found dead in his cell a few days after stabbing a prison officer to death.

A total of 15 people have been charged with beating and torturing Kareli, causing his death.

It is expected that the prison guards will ask for more time before giving their depositions.
