A funny play of how the court worked in ancient Athens.
Scores of protesters clashed with police outside an Athens courthouse as they rallied against state-run auctions to sell off repossessed homes on Wednesday. Foreclosures began in November as part of austerity reforms under Greece's bailout deal with its lenders. The protesters attempted to enter the court but were stopped by police blocking the main entrance.

(16 Mar 2018) Eight Turkish servicemen who fled to Greece by helicopter after a failed military coup in Turkey in 2016, arrived at court on Friday for a new extradition bid by Turkey. Greek courts have twice rejected Turkish requests for extradition, and Greece's supreme court has already ruled that none of the eight men should be extradited as they wouldn't get a fair trial in Turkey, and that their lives might be in danger there. The decision has prompted anger from Turkey.

An improvised bomb exploded outside the Greek appeals court in Athens in the early hours of Friday morning, shattering windows and causing damage to the exterior of the building. Footage shows police and forensic teams assessing the damage and searching for evidence. The explosion occurred at 01:25 local time (23:25 GMT, Thursday), just metres away from Greece's police headquarters, after a caller gave the security forces 40 minutes to clear the area. Nobody was hurt in the blast, although the courthouse was closed for the rest of the day. No group has yet come forward to claim responsibility for the bombing. The government passed legislation penalising violent protests against foreclosures, which usually take place outside court. Video ID: 20171222-046 Video on Demand: http://www.rup...

Members of collectives gathered outside Athens County Court and protested against the government's intention to lift the protection against the auctions of primary residences from January 1st, 2014, as demanded by foreign creditors. This is a critical issue that concerns thousands of households, which in the period of crisis and memoranda fail to fulfill their obligations. From January 1, 2014 , if no other arrangements, the conditional protection of primary residence and any other property from auctions, is lifted. Besides the level of protection from auctions for debts up to 200,000 euros to banks is repealed. At the same time there will be no protection for debts to the State and to Insurance Funds.

(22 Dec 2017) A powerful explosion has damaged a court complex in central Athens on Friday, causing no injuries. Police said the blast occurred before dawn, following warning telephone calls to the offices of a daily newspaper and news website. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack which occurred hours after parliament approved measures to impose penalties against demonstrators who gather regularly at the court to try to disrupt weekly auctions of foreclosed homes. The auctions have put pressure on Greece's left-wing government which has abandoned tougher protection measures for distressed mortgage holders as part of negotiations with bailout lenders.
