The decision of the Court of Thessaloniki regarding the events of June in Thessaloniki was published today. The Court, comprising of three judges, accepted most of the defendants' claims and has dropped the charges for thirteen of them, including Simon Chapman. Another six defendants, including the Spanish ex-hunger striker Carlos, are going to be charged with misdemeanours. For the other 8 defendants the court ordered the investigation to continue, as it spotted many gaps and contradictions in the statements of policemen and a lack of other evidence. This is a justification for the hunger strikers' struggle and for all of those who were claiming the charges were set up by the authorities.
