The University of Athens, Greece administrative employees announced their decision to go on two more 24-hour strikes against the Board’s recommendation. Yesterday, the University of Athens Law School President, Mr. Fortsakis, announced the beginning of courses. However things didn’t go as planned.
The Law School building is currently under occupation by groups of students as well as the administrative employees, who have blocked the entrance of the building and denied access to teachers and students.
In regards to the University of Athens Rector, Theodoros Pelegrinis, the prosecutor has given him a deadline for next Monday. Mr. Pelegrinis, has requested and received a deadline in order to explain himself as asked in the preliminary examination conducted by the prosecutor Mr. Ioannidis, after the Greek Minister of Education’s report and the University Council announcement that held him accountable for the University’s situation.
However, the situation at the National Technical University of Athens is back to normal seeing as the administrative employees have suspended their strike mobilization. A General Meeting will be held on Thursday in order to address the implementation of the Greek Minister of Education’s commitments.
