A 33-year-old woman accused of throwing an egg at Deputy Citizen Protection Minister Manolis Othonas, breaking it on the back of his head, is to stand trial on October 10 after the minister sued her for insulting behaviour. The incident occurred at an event attended by the minister in Rethymno, on the island of Crete.
Othonas, who is a key witness of the incident, was not present when the woman was taken before a police court on Monday so that the court, at the request of the defendant's counsel, decided that the case will be tried on October 10 so that the minister might attend.
