Organizers of Greek Terrorist Killer’s Rallies Face Police Charges

ATHENS – Organizers who violated laws and health measures against public gatherings and brought together thousands of backers of jailed terrorist killer Dimitris Koufodinas will have charges brought against them by Greek police.

Case files against several of the demonstrations that clogged the streets of Athens and the country’s second-largest city Thessaloniki are being compiled, said Kathimerini.

Police sources not named told the paper that four rallies in Athens did not have permission to take place as required under a law the Conservatives passed that drew criticism for trying to contain demonstrations.

They also happened during a third quasi-lockdown aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 which provides for fines for organizers but the paper said in this case charges won’t be brought against individuals but groups.

The files will then be sent to a prosecutor who will determine whether there are grounds for further investigation and possibly formal charges to be brought against specific individuals but it didn’t identify the groups.

His adoring fans are backing Koufodinas’ demand to be transferred from a high-security prison in the central town of Domokos to Korydallos Prison in Athens – where he was before the former ruling Radical Left SYRIZA moved him to a low-security work farm.

After the Leftists were ousted in July 7, 2019 snap elections, the now ruling New Democracy moved him to Domokos and on March 5 entered the 58th day of a hunger strike to demand he get what he wants.
