Back from court
Just got back from court. It was a simple procedure in that all I had to do was tell a court official that everything I wanted to say was in the testimony I had already filed. The only thing they asked was if I had any more information on the names of the riot cops (MAT) who attacked me and since they refuse to reveal names, even to the ombudsman I had to say no. The reasons they gave for this refusal range from the absurd to the downright childish.
Interestingly, I saw in their reply to the ombudsman the reason why they choose me. It appears that
"προκλητικα και κατ' επαναληψη τους φωτογραφιζε τις κινησεις τους"
Meaning, I repeatedly and provocatively (?) photographed their movements. I never knew the goon squad was made up of such sensitive types.
