Citing COVID-19, Greek Judges Want Fewer Cases Heard

ATHENS – As Greece edged toward a possible second national lockdown to try to slow the spread of COVID-19, the union representing the country's judges wants the government to cut down the number of trials in administrative courts.

The courts had been locked down too in a first shutdown in March that lasted up to 10 weeks and operated on skeleton staffs at some point, which the judges want now to limit how many people can come in, said Kathimerini.

The union asked for hearings that weren't essentially to be postponed indefinitely until the second wave of the pandemic has passed and restrictions have eased.
