Five Individuals in US Embassy Protest March to Stand Trial on June 16

ATHENS — Five individuals are being prosecuted on misdemeanor charges over incidents during a march at the US embassy in Athens to protest the death of George Floyd, police said on Thursday.

Four Greeks and an Italian appeared before a prosecutor on Thursday who read them their charges and set a trial date on June 16. The range of charges include disturbing the peace, attempt at grievous bodily harm as a group and repeatedly, destruction of public property and illegal bearing of arms. They were released until the trial.

A group of 15-20 people had gathered outside the courts at Evelpidon to support the defendants.

Police said two of the Greeks detained after the protest march on Wednesday night are accused of attacking police with rocks and other objects, and the rest are accused of damage to store fronts at Kolonaki Square and of throwing marble pieces at police. The Italian male is also accused of using a fire extinguisher against police and throwing a metal stand at them, damaging three police motorbikes.
