  • Description

    A court martial on Saturday (9 August) sentenced fourteen army officers to prison terms ranging from four to twelve years on charges of conspiring to commit sedition. Seven other defendants were acquitted by the court marital which lasted seventeen days.

    Those who faced charges included two Brigadier-Generals, accused of plotting to seize military units and dictate conditions to the new civilian government.

    The prosecution said that one condition demanded by the accused was an amnesty for members of the military regime which ruled Greece from 1967 until it was toppled last year. Some of the military rulers are now on trial for treason.
