On December 30

On this day in ...
... 1990 (20 years ago today), outcry over a decision announced the day before prompted the Greek government to announce that "it would not go ahead with plans to pardon Greece's jailed former military dictators." who had seized power in the 1967 coup d'état commemorated in the poster at right (image credit), until 1974, when the 1st free elections in a decade were held. The dictators were in prison following conviction on charges including treason, torture, and murder of dissidents.
