The shock was caused by a video that appeared on the Internet, which captures the moment classmates attacked a student of Agrinio secondary school.
The student’s mother filed a lawsuit against seven of his classmates, students from Agrinio High School, as the entire scene was recorded on the hooligans’ cell phones and then shared on social media.
As it became known, on November 11, the student’s mother, who came to school for him, found her 13-year-old son beaten and in tears. When she asked the child what had happened, he replied that he was attacked by a classmate who hit him in the face several times. The attack took place in front of six other students at the school, who are accused of inciting bullying.
This can be seen in the corresponding video posted on Instagram and Tik Tok to students of the school, who allegedly acted at the instigation of a high school student. And then those who watched the beating process laughed and mocked the 13-year-old boy who tried to dodge the blows in every possible way.
The lawsuit filed Friday November 12 against Agrinio’s attorney by the mother’s lawyer, Pantelis Vamvakas, described other aggressive behavior by classmates, with particular attention to the attitude of the school leadership, who allegedly even asked for a withdrawal of the claim.
According to the mother, her child did not go to school until the 23rd, as he was in a poor psychological state, and returned on November 24th, as he was transferred to another class.
According to agriniopress.gr, the lawsuit also mentions ongoing cases of child abuse at school, repeated physical and psychological abuse, and the educational institution is accused of failing to take the necessary measures to prevent bullying.
