Aris Salonica were docked three
points among other punishments on Wednesday after their recent
Greek Super League match with Asteras Tripolis was abandoned
when an lineswoman was hit by a bottle.
The Greek Football Federation's appeals body announced the
decision after prosecutor Panagiotis Karras had said the Super
League's original ruling was too lenient.
The April 8 match was stopped by the referee in the 42nd
minute when lineswoman Chrysoula Kourobilia was hit in the
stomach by a bottle thrown from the home fans with the visitors
Kourobilia was not seriously injured but could not continue.
As well as being docked three points, Aris received a 40,000
euro-fine and have been ordered to play one match
behind closed doors. A 3-0 win was awarded to Asteras.
The club had initially received a one-match stadium ban and
a 55,000-euro fine by the league's disciplinary committee who
had also ruled that the match should not have been stopped and
should continue from the moment it was halted.
Panathinaikos were docked five points and ordered to play
four games behind closed doors - later reduced to three on
appeal - as punishment for crowd violence in the derby match
against Olympiakos Piraeus last month.
It was the stiffest penalty ever imposed by the Greek Super
League and meant Olympiakos won the title.
