Greek justice is no justice for Andrew Symeou - the Briton left in limbo

A British student awaits his day in court 20 months after being extradited under a controversial EU law.

Last week, in a chilly Greek courtroom, a young British student went on trial for his life. As the jury was chosen, and the opening speeches began, Andrew Symeou realised with horror that he didn't know what they were saying.

They'd given him a translator – but she couldn't even tell the difference between the word for "juror" and the word for "witness."

After one piece of legal argument, in the hearing of the court, she concluded her translation with the words: "Or something like that." In a homicide case, "something like that" will not do.

A previous interpreter, Symeou said afterwards, had actually translated his "No" as a "Yes." What do you expect, his father said. The Greek courts pay them 17 euros (£14) a day.
