Greek Justice

Lest you forget, Greece will be hosting the Summer Olympics next year. Olympic athletes beware of falling or poor performances; you could find yourself in court.

An 11-year-old boy in Greece is to stand trial after falling off his bike during a race. The boy on the eastern Aegean Sea island of Chios has been ordered to stand trial on October 13 for allegedly violating eight articles of the penal code and one traffic violation for falling off his bicycle during an annual race.

The boy - identified only by his first name as Manolis - was taking part in last year's Chios bicycle race when he suddenly fell off his bike. He was not injured in the accident, nor did he cause any injuries to other riders taking part in the race, according to reports. The island's prosecutor said the boy fell because he was "not driving carefully and with constant rapt attention" and ordered him to appear in juvenile court.
