Appeals trial of 2 sentenced for DIAS murders postponed

The appeals trial of two men sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of two DIAS motorcycle-riding squad officers in the district of Rendi, southern Athens, was postponed on Tuesday until February 2.

The victims, Giorgos Skyloyiannis, 22 and Yiannis Evangelinelis, 23, died after four men opened fire on eight DIAS officers who were pursuing them following a robbery on a convenience store in Menidi, north of Athens.
