Clashes broke out on Sunday night as protesters rallied in Athens against a court of appeal decision denying 29 year old Irianna’s petition for suspension of her prison sentence until appeal.

Irianna, whose last name has been withheld, was sentenced to thirteen years for “possession of illegal firearms with intent to distribute them for criminal activities” in June however activists have widely rejected the validity of evidence used against her and vocally demonstrated against the decision.
