Anarchists Strike Again, Demand Release of Terrorist Koufodinas

June 4, 2018

ATHENS – Anarchists tore into the office of the General Secretariat for Trade on Monday, May 4, as part of another attack, this one they said to demand the release of Nov. 17 convicted terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas.

He is on a hunger strike and said he won’t eat until the government, which has already given him two 48-hour furloughs, allows him regular vacations from jail so he can see his family and restart a beekeeping business and meets his demand prosecutors not be allowed to block his time off. Koufodinas serving 11 life sentences for his part in assassinations, including five Americans.

He said in an announcement posted on an anti-establishment website he wants regular vacations and abolition of the Supreme Court prosecutor’s veto power over his requests for prison leave so he could get out without restriction.

He had two previous 48-hour leaves but didn’t say how much time off he wants now although earlier he said he wants more time with his family and try to restart a beekeeping business he had before his notorious November 17 terrorist group went on a string of murders, including Americans attached to the US Embassy.

After promising to end furloughs for violent criminals, the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA is allowing him to have vacations, the latest a two-day break in February, but he wants more and with no interference from the justice system.

Some of the family members of victims pleaded against leniency for the terrorists in his group but were ignored.

Koufodinas, 60, was the group’s hitman and planned the murders in what it said was an attempt to overthrow interests in the country they didn’t like and destabilize the government, which didn’t work.
