On April 18, 2013, a farmer from Nea Maolada and his guards shot with huntguns on Bangladeshis farm workers came to claim their unpaid wages, injuring twenty eight of them.

The tribunal innocent the farmer and one of the guards, while another security guard was convicted of “harming the physical integrity” and the third accomplice. This indulgence has led to strong protests in Greece.
