Duplicate Photo[edit]

This article (Distomo massacre) shares the same photo (but different image file) as the article for Massacre of Kalavryta. This is clearly an error as these events happened in different places and on different dates. Image origin must be mistaken for one of these photos. --X2ca (talk) 09:06, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

court decision?[edit]

"Up until this day he and the other survivors and relatives have not received a single cent as compensation even though the Areopag, the Greek High court, has passed a legally binding decision in May 2000 obliging the Federal Republic of Germany to pay a sum of altogether 28 million Euro as compensation to the victims."

As far as I know no greek court can make any binding decision against any foreign sovereign state. And no private civilian can sue Germany or any other country like Italy for reparations/compensations - only the state of Greece could do that. So is the sentence above simply wrong or a propaganda attempt to make Germany appear as not abiding to international law? Especially considering that in the last part of the article the final court decision is mentioned that completely confirms the position of Germany.ConjurerDragon (talk) 18:00, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
