>The trial of the killers of Alexandros Grigoropoulos to resume and conclude in September; prosecutor recommends life-sentence for Korkoneas



#347 |

On Friday, August 6th, the public prosecutor described his verdict for the case of Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vasilis Saraliotis, the two cops who killed 15-year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos on the night of December 6th, 2008 in Athens. Τhe prosecutor rejected all “mitigating factors” brought forward by the side of the two accused cops. If his recommendation is upheld by the court’s judges, Korkoneas should receive a life sentence.
The trial will recommence on September 2nd. Following the trial procedures in Greece, it is now the turn of the two lawyers (those representing the cops and Alexandros’ family) to make their final speeches before the final verdict is announced –  which we expect to happen in the first week of September.
