Greek original

Yiannis is being hospitalised for a fourth consecutive day in the intensive care unit of the General State Hospital of Nikaia, in Athens. His condition remains stable and under control. Up to this point, unwanted medical complications have been avoided, yet he remains intubated and with mechanical ventilation.

The coroner who examined him reported two serious blows from a blunt object in the head, which caused the subdural haematoma. Yet apart from that, the coroner also reported many blows in the back caused by a police baton.
