Greece Will Pay Damages to Relatives of Marfin Dead, PM’s Office Says

ATHENS – The state will waive its legal right not to compensate the relatives of three Marfin Bank employees who died after a firebomb attack in 2010, by decision of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced Friday.

The fatal incident during a protest rally, which shocked the Greek public, led to court cases which delivered manslaughter charges to three bank officials and absolved the police and fire brigade of negligence charges, while it awared the relatives of the three deceased, including a pregnant staff member, damages totalling 2.24 million euros.

Mitsotakis' press office said that the state will go ahead and pay the damages as a gesture of moral obligation.
