A file that was considered suspicious earlier caused a protest at the courthouse in Thessaloniki. After checking it was found that it contained a book of religious content.

Two weeks after the discovery of an explosive device envelope addressed to a President of Appeals, today a colleague of hers, a trial judge, considered suspicious an envelope that arrived in the mail at her office and had her name as the addressee.

The file was handed over to the police for investigation, while an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit with a specially trained dog was called to the scene. In addition, officers from the Anti-Terrorist Service and the Thessaloniki Security Service arrived at the courts.

The suspicious envelope went through an X-ray scanner at the side entrance of the building, where nothing suspicious was found. After it was opened it emerged – according to information – that it contained a book of religious content.

It was not deemed necessary to evacuate the building.
