  • Introduction to Video Content
  • The Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, has issued an apology to the families of the 57 victims who lost their lives in a train crash on Tuesday. He expressed his disbelief that two trains were able to run on the same track in opposite directions without anyone noticing. In response to the incident, thousands of protesters, including rail workers on strike, clashed with the police, accusing the government of neglect. Sofia Batista provides an update on the situation. The ongoing protests across Greece demonstrate the widespread anger regarding the systemic failures that allowed such a disaster to occur. On February 28th, a passenger train and a freight train collided on the same track, resulting in the death of 57 individuals, primarily students. In remembrance of the victims, hundreds of balloons were released in Syntagma Square in Athens. Meanwhile, a stationmaster implicated in the accident appeared in court and has been charged with manslaughter due to negligence. The stationmaster's lawyer has stated that he acknowledged his share of responsibility in the incident. Prime Minister Mitsotakis has taken to Facebook to publicly apologize to the grief-stricken families, emphasizing that it is unacceptable for two trains to be on the same track without detection in 2023 Greece. He has assured a swift investigation, but many feel that it is inadequate given the circumstances. Despite the warnings made by railway workers, those in charge failed to address safety concerns, ultimately resulting in this tragic accident. It is imperative for the government to reconsider their approach and prioritize the safety of their citizens to ensure this kind of incident is never repeated.
