Number of arrests, country-wide, since 6/12 (updated 17/12)

An effort to gather information about the total arrests and convictions all over the country from 6/12. Information is by lawyers, comrades, and in some cases the press/media. Every effort has been taken to include verified information.


Everyone convicted and/or fined were tried in flagrante delicto [in a police or Magistrate's court, or in plain words a summary justice court where the trial takes place no more than 48 hours after the arrestable offense or after the arrest was announced by the cops]. The rest are released after a date for a trial is set (usually after some months), except for those who are kept in pre-trial custody (can be as long as one year, according to greek law, and is often used to force lenghty imprisonment without a court decision). There were many more (hundreds) seized and detained by the police as suspects, against which no evidence was found and no charges pressed, so they were released. According to latest data, there have been approximately 210 arrestees, of which appr. 21% minors, 27% immigrants and 32% will remain in custody.

ATHENS: 50 immigrants are confirmed to have been tried and convicted to 18 months in prison without right to a parole, in trials where there was no translator/interpreter for them and will likely be deported after they serve the sentence (immigrant arrests are going on every day and the picture isn't clear yet). Also, on December 9 there were two arrests and a day of the trial was set (arrestees released), on December 11 5 were held in pre-trial custody [3 greeks and 2 immigrants] and on December 15 another 4 in pre-trial custody (according to the University of Economics [ASOEE] occupation blog and comrades).

THESSALONIKI: 21 arrests (3 minors will be tried on February 13th 2009 - the rest, mostly immigrants, were tried in flagrante delicto [in a police or Magistrate's court], convicted and likely no-one is in pre-trial custody, maybe the number of arrests in all the days past is greater -according to the ASOEE blog and comrades).
