Event in Hania to commemorate slain American scientist Suzanne Eaton

Mental health activists and concerned citizens will be gathering at the municipal market of Hania on Crete on Thursday evening to raise awareness about violence against women, at an event held in commemoration of the slain American scientist Suzanne Eaton.

“We need to show that we will not be silent, that no one has the right to take another person’s life,” the event’s organizer, the Psychological Center of Hania, said on social media inviting the public to the event.

Suzanne Eaton, 59, was raped and murdered while in Hania to attend a conference last month. Her assailant, a 27-year-old local farmer, told investigators he had felt compelled to run her down when he saw her jogging along the side of a rural road.

  1. I am a foreign single woman in Greece who was attacked in my home by a man and a woman more than 3 years ago. The police who i called for help could not ‘find’ my address. No one to help me. I felt desperate. They stalked me and damaged my car, broke things in my house and physically my car. Before that they came to my house they received an official complaint from the police and made by my layer on ny begalf. They dont care. I moved house and since then I am hiding. I made a court case against them and last June we went to Court in Heraklion They asked to postpone the case and the judge approved it and moved it to December 2020.!!! So I have to keep hiding and hope they donr find me and do more bodily harm to me or worse…. Where is the justice in this? I am scared and very disappointed that they don’t take cases like this more serious.
