Expert Says Seismic Activity in Thiva Will Subside but Caution Needed

ATHENS – The burst of seismic activity in Thiva and the surrounding area will most likely subside, estimated professor of Seismology and director of Athens Geodynamic Institute Akis Tselentis, speaking to Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Wednesday.

However, Tselentis noted, the area has given earthquakes as high as 6.2 on the Richter scale in the period between 1977-1981 and its vicinity with the Corinthian Gulf is grounds for greater caution.

Professor Tselentis will visit the area on Wednesday and Thursday and will meet with the mayors and local authorities, as well as placing equipment for monitoring tremors, starting on Wednesday in Halkida, while on Thursday he will collaborate with the coordination body in Livadia.


ATHENS - A Mixed Jury Criminal Appeals Court on Friday handed down sentences of life and 15 years imprisonment on the two young men found guilty of the murder and gang rape of 21-year-old student Eleni Topaloudi, imposing the same sentence as that imposed by a lower court.
