Greece's Council of State, the top administrative court in the country, on Monday issued an urgent decision dismissing a motion to strike down a ban on outdoor assemblies until Wednesday, citing the best interests of the public and public health amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The ban had been issued by Greece's police chief ahead of Tuesday's anniversary of a students' uprising against a military junta then ruling Greece in 1973.

The motion was filed by Yianis Varoufakis' far-left and anti-euro Mera25 party as well as other human rights NGOs.
