Greek appeals judge orders retrial for cyber cafe owners.

TELECOMWORLDWIRE-19 September 2002-Greek appeals judge orders retrial for cyber cafe owners (C)1994-2002 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Three Greeks that were previously tried for allowing their customers to play computer games in their cyber cafe are set to go on trial again following a decision from an appeals court judge.

Previously, a lower court came to the decision that the two cyber cafe owners and one employee could not be prosecuted as the recently introduced law that bans all electronic games in public business establishments violates the Greek constitution. The appeals court judge has now ruled that the law does not violate the constitution and the three are free to be put on trial again.

If convicted, the defendants could face up to three months in prison and a fine of at least EUR5,000.
