Irianna Ruling Will go Down in ‘Black Book’ for Greek Justice, Greek Gov’t Spox Says

“Justice creates the suspicion that it decides and deliberates using criteria beyond strictly legal judgements,” government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Tuesday, in a comment on Monday’s ruling concerning a Greek postgraduate student convicted to prison as a member of the terrorist group “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.”

“It was a bad development. Yesterday’s ruling will be recorded in the ‘black book’ of Greek justice,” Tzanakopoulos said in an interview with the radio station “Sto Kokkino.”A Greek appeals court on Monday refused to suspend execution of a prison sentence imposed on the 29-year-old postgraduate student known as Irianna and fellow-convict on terrorist charges Periklis, finding that they should remain in prison until their case is heard on appeal. Irianna was convicted on the basis of DNA evidence that has been contested as incomplete and therefore not sufficiently conclusive as to support a conviction.
