Arrested Greek Lawyers Brought Before Special Magistrate Investigating “Prison Mafia” Case

ATHENS – The two prominent criminal laywers who have been arrested in relation to the the so-called “Korydallos prison mafia” case have been brought before the Special Examining Magistrate Eftychis Nikopoulos, who is conducting the investigation.

The charges against them relate to an ongoing investigation into the attempted homicide of a former attorney of the Greek Electricity Market Operator (LAGIE) in 2014, for which the business man Aris Floros has already been convicted by a first-instance court as moral instigator, while the perpetrators are members of the prison criminal organisation.

An appeal hearing of the case is due to begin soon, under the shadow of revelations that have led to the LAGIE lawyer being himself charged and remanded in custody as a member of the criminal ring.

The two lawyers arrested on Thursday and Friday were until recently representing the former LAGIE lawyer in the attempted homicide case and are alleged to have demanded money from Floros in order for their client to withdraw his civil suit for the attack against him in 2014.
