      Esphigmenou Monks Acquitted

      (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.
