The station master involved in Greece's worst-ever train disaster was due to appear in court on Saturday after mass protests broke out over the crash that killed at least 57 people, APA reports citing The Sun.
Thousands of protesters have demonstrated across the country since Tuesday's collision between a passenger train and a freight train, with public anger mounting over government failure to manage the rail network.
The 59-year-old station master at Larissa, central Greece, has admitted responsibility for the accident, which saw the two trains run along the same track for several kilometres.
The train was carrying many students returning from a holiday weekend and at least nine young people studying at Thessaloniki's Aristotle University were among the dead, while another 26 others were injured.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is seeking re-election this spring, has blamed the disaster on “tragic human error”.
