The eight young men accused of participating in the attack on the rector of the Athens University of Economics and Business, Dimitris Bourantonis, on October 29, which caused a public outcry, have been released after testifying before an investigative magistrate last week.

Four were released without any restrictive conditions, while the other four were released on bail of €3,000 each.

All denied having any role in the attack, which involved about 15 hooded assailants who stormed into the rector’s office, manhandled him and hung a sign around his necksaying “Solidarity with sit-ins.” 

A photo of the rector with the sign was posted on an anti-establishment website.
