Four Nigrita jail guards bailed over inmate’s fatal torture

Four prison guards from Nigrita jail in northern Greece were bailed on Monday after giving their depositions in connection to the deadly beating suffered by inmate Ilie Kareli.

Six prison guards have been remanded in custody, while a total of six have been bailed.

Another two prison guards are to face a prosecutor in Serres on Wednesday.

Kareli, 42, died a few hours after being transferred to Nigrita prison from Malandrino jail, where he stabbed prison officer Giorgos Tsironis to death.
