A 32-year-old air traffic controller in Thessaloniki, who posted what prosecutors called insulting and threatening comments against the prime minister's family on the message board of a popular news aggregate site, was acquitted by a court on Friday, which ruled that the defendant did not intend to urge anyone to commit a crime.
“I just wanted to express my indignation,” the man told the Thessaloniki court, while he admitted that the content of his comments was “overboard”.
The prosecutor had recommended that he should be found guilty of “incitement to a criminal act”, while he advised him to protest on the street instead of writing such messages. 
The electronic crimes squad officers in Athens had located the man electronic 'footprints' and arrested him at Thessaloniki’s airport, where he is employed.
