The trial of nine defendants charged with various terrorism-related charges for their alleged participation in the "Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire" ultra-leftist terror gang -- six jailed and three free on bail -- was adjourned for Thursday, as they refused to accept 18 new court-appointed defence attorneys on Tuesday.

The trial of nine defendants charged with various terrorism-related charges for their alleged participation in the "Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire" ultra-leftist terror gang -- six jailed and three free on bail -- was adjourned for Thursday, as they refused to accept 18 new court-appointed defence attorneys on Tuesday.

Their previous attorneys resigned after the court ruled against the defendants' demands to record the court proceedings and to allow spectators inside the specially modified courtroom -- located within the women's wing at the Korydallos penitentiary -- without showing police IDs.

Only the three defendants out on bail were in the courtroom.
