Doctors to be 'charged with homicide' if they do not force feed hunger strikers

26.11.2003 12:02 | Thessaloniki EU

An amazing declaration today by the district attorney in Athens who issued a statement that the 5 hunger strikers will be forced fed and ant doctors who refuse this will be "charged with homicide"!!!!

A translation of the statement will be put on indymedia as and when we have it. What we know so far is that the Doctors in question, those of the civil hospital in Athens were Carlos, Fernando and Spiros are held, have refused this demand by the District Attorney of Athens. We wait with any developments.

Yesterday morning an inquiry was started by the supreme court into the allegations of the fit-up of the thessaloniki seven. This is an unprecedented move and will be more preassure on the courts in thessaloniki regarding their decision whether or not to release the hunger strikers on humanitarian grounds.

The chief prosecutor has proposed that the council of judges in thessaloniki should REJECT the application to release the five hunger strikers on humanitarian grounds. This was done in the form of a 70 page report presented to the judges. It is still ultimately the judges who will decide in the next few days but many of the legal team fear that the judges will NOT go against the chief prosecutor.

Around 30 MEP have apparently issued a statement to the Greek authorities for the immediate release of the 5 hunger strikers on humanitarian grounds.
