The Council's decision acquitted Zagorianos of breach of duty and abuse of authority, finding that neither omissions nor actions by the magistrate during the course of his investigation were linked to Christoforakos' flight.
The decision backs up the findings of the appeals magistrate that originally investigated the charges against Zagorianos, who had recommended that he be acquitted. The Appeals Justices' Council had decided at the time to go ahead with the investigation, however.
In its meeting on Wednesday, it adopted the prosecutor's position that there was insufficient evidence to support the charges.
The magistrate has also been acquitted by a decision of the Supreme Court Areios Pagos of all disciplinary liability.
