Greek High Court Will Hear Terrorist Koufodinas’ Transfer Plea

ATHENS – Terrorist killer Dimitris Koufodinas’ demand to be transferred back to a prison in Athens where he didn’t want to be will be taken up by Greece’s highest administrative court, the Council of State.

Koufodinas, who stopped a two-month-long hunger strike as his life was said to be peril, wants to be sent back to Korydallos Prison from a maximum security prison in Domokos in central Greece.

Before that he was transferred from Korydallos, when it was also a high-security prison, to a low-security work farm near Volos when the Radical Left SYRIZA, riddled with terrorist and anarchist supporters, was in power.

Koufodinas had also been given six vacations from jail when the Leftists ruled and has constantly demanded favored treatment before being rebuffed when the New Democracy Conservatives won July 7, 2019 snap elections.

Besides complaining about conditions at Domokos, he said the government has violated his rights for a transfer although New Democracy officials said he was barred because Korydallos now is a pre-detention facility not capable of holding maximum security prisoners.

Koufodinas’ lawyers, who said he’s unhappy being cooped up while serving life sentences for murdering 11 people among the 23 victims of the former November 17 terror gang, want the court to force the government to make the transfer.

In March, a lower section of the court ruled that jurisdiction for the case lies with the country’s criminal courts and kicked out the appeal. Koufodinas’ supporters had demonstrated repeatedly for more leniency for him.
