Plenum of Larissa Appeals Court Judges to Convene on Friday over Train Disaster Case

LARISSA – The plenum of Larissa Appeals Court judges is to meet on Friday at 13:30, in order to decide whether the main investigation into the fatal train crash in Tempi should be upgraded to appellate level and assigned to an Appellate Special Examining Magistrate.
