OPINION

October 25, 1952

GEORGIOS SIMITIS: At their last meeting, the association of professors at the School of Economic and Commercial Sciences decided by a vote of 7 to 5 that Mr Georgios Simitis, restored by royal decree to the post of professor of commercial law, should not teach or examine students because of his activities for the National Liberation Front (EAM) both before joining the faculty and during his tenure.
