Last night, shortly after midnight, the EKAM special suppressive antiterrorist unit and other police forces raided the 1st and the 4th wing of Koridallos men’s prison.
At least 150 cops, along with judicial functionaries and representatives of the justice ministry, conducted raids in the cells of all prisoners in those wings. Inmates were handcuffed behind their backs and didn’t have any visual contact with the cells during the searches, while several prisoners were beaten.
In the early hours of the morning, the EKAM special suppressive antiterrorist unit came back and violently abducted anarchist prisoners Panos Michalakoglou, Panos Aspiotis and Antonis Stamboulos, who were moved to the Prisoner Transfer Division on Petrou Ralli St., Athens. Later, dozens more inmates were ‘ghosted’ as well. The prison remained on lockdown until 11am.
According to latest info, Panos Michalakoglou is to be transferred to Nigrita prison (near Serres, northern Greece); Panos Aspiotis to Nafplion prison; and Antonis Stamboulos to Larissa prison.
