Esphigmenou Monks Acquitted by Court

(NFTU) The Third Court of Appeals in Thessaloniki, Greece announced their
decision and found no evidence that the Esphigmenou Monks were guilty of the
charge of disturbing the peace. The incident took place back in 2005. Some
of the incident was video taped by the Esphigmenou Monks, and it clearly
shows a violent attack perpetrated "on them" and "not by them". The sinister
attack on the monks of Esphigmenou with a sledgehammer made news around the
world and video of it (see below) aired showing the shocking details. It was
clearly an embarrassment for not only the Greek Government and Patriarch
Bartholomew but also all those who opposed Esphigmenou. The over zealous
prosecutor in Thessalonki, however, thought it a good idea to pursue
charges. No charges shockingly enough were ever brought upon the
sledgehammer wielding monks outside but only to the defenseless Esphigmenou
monks held up behind the locked wooden door.

Do You know if they still threaten to blow the monastery up as they did in September?
