Police detain then arrest 49 during raid on Thessaloniki University sciences school

The 49 people detained and then arrested during a police raid on the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki School of Sciences were brought to the Thessaloniki Three-Member Misdemeanours Court to be charged on Sunday, after they were taken into custody on Saturday. They are to face immediate trial, as they are considered to be arrested in flagrante delicto.

Under stringent security, they were taken to the Thessaloniki court building and charged with seriously disrupting the smooth operation of a public-law legal entity. Additionally, 48 of the 49 suspects were charged with insubordination because they refused to submit to having their fingerprints taken.

The suspects, 31 men and 18 women between the ages of 19 and 30 years old, will remain in custody on Sunday night and be taken to the court again on Clean Monday, in order to be tried.

During the rain, police confiscated items such as naval flares, wooden poles, gas masks, fire extinguishers, sledgehammers and other evidence. A police investigation is continuing to identify the culprits and bring separate charges for violations of the law on weapons and flares.
Protestors supporting those arrested gathered outside the court building early on Sunday.

Arrhythmias Update 2022 in Thessaloniki on 2 & 3 September - Watch it live

After the highly successful course of the previous events of the 3rd University Cardiology Clinic of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Conference entitled "Arrhythmias Update 2022" is being organized again this year at the Mediterranean Palace hotel, on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 September 2022, in a hybrid way, according to the instructions of the state.

The pandemic has changed the way the disease is treated. The use of now personalized techniques based on genetics, but also IT has entered our everyday life. Artificial intelligence and large databases have enabled the creation of "intelligent" algorithms that can predict the prevalence of diseases in the general population, help diagnose diseases and recommend the most appropriate treatment. This technology exists and is evolving in our country as well, and scientists who actively participate in its development will inform us about precision medicine.
Of great interest is the joint meeting with the International Scientific Society for Holter and Non Invasive Electrocardiography (ISHNE) where topics will be developed by leading scientists of the international community.

In this conference, two new clinical tutorials are planned: one concerns the use of the latest techniques of Echocardiography in arrhythmic patients and the programming of their biventricular devices. The other concerns familiarization and practice in newer arrhythmia ablation techniques.

The participation in the Congress of the best in their field from the Greek and International area is a guarantee, so that this event does not turn into a sterile presentation of data.
