I just woke up and received this e-mail from the Canadian Embassy in Athens:
We have just been informed by Mrs.Kailli (Head of Public Prosecutor's office - Mixed Judge/Jury Court) that the Court secretarial staff will be on strike as of the 29th of Sept. until the 2nd of October, therefor it is likely that the hearing will NOT take place (cancellation). More specifically, although she can not rule out a small possibility of the trial taking place if the strike is suddenly called off, she recommends that you do not travel at this time.
Should you decide to travel, it is not clear by Mrs.Kailli whether you will be reimbursed for your expenses.
Please contact us for any clarifications that you may need or to discuss the issue.
I am absolutely blown-over, stunned, and gobsmacked. I am in shock. I can't believe, after everything, that this has happened. I can't believe that I may have to deal with all of this a THIRD TIME, if they reschedule the trial and I am able to go. It was 15 months between the initial trial and when they rescheduled it. When will this be scheduled for? I am getting married in a year. I wanted this to be over. I am realizing now how much I had mentally prepared myself for this... so in a way, despite my dreading it, this feels like a huge let-down.
For once in my life, I am at a loss for words.
