ATHENS – A 36-year-old member of the notorious Rouvikonas group who paint-bombed the Greek Parliament to protest terrorist killer Dimitris Koufodinas being barred from a seventh vacation from jail was released.

The person, who was not named, was the only one arrested from a group of about 15 who stormed up the steps outside the froint of the Parliament to splash red paint after Rouvikonas warned deadly violence if Koufodinas, who was on a hunger strike, perished.

Koufodinas stopped his strike after Greece’s high court said a judicial council should take up the case of his being rejected for another furlough.

The person apprehended was released on condition he not leave the country, would appear twice a month at a local police station and pay a bail of 30,000 euros ($33,619.)

The law on the damage caused on historic monuments, as the Parliament is signified, does not allow for keeping suspects in custody, said Kathimerini.
