MEP Zagorakis’s immunity lifted so he can stand trial

New Democracy MEP Theodoros Zagorakis had his immunity lifted on Wednesday by the European Parliament so he could stand trial in Greece in connection to an accident that happened at PAOK’s Toumba Stadium in May 2010, when he was the club’s chairman.

The ex-soccer player is accused of failing to abide by safety regulations and being responsible for an employee’s injury.
