On 24/2/2016 begins the second degree trial for the case of robbery of
Alphabank in Naousa of Paros, with anarchist communist Tasos Theofilou
as the accused.
Despite the collapse of the indictment, Tasos was sentenced to 25 years
in prison and now deals with the “appeal to the law” the prosecutor
applied for, which means that he will be tried again, this time for the
charges which he was acquitted ofin the first trial (participation in
the CCF and homicide).
Excerpt from the text of anarchist communist comrade Tasos Theofilou for
his upcoming trial on 24/2/16
“Today the conjuncture is different in the sense that the government
that took over the management of authority and the enforcement of
extreme policies of austerity is strangely addressed to even a
progressive audience and therefore does not have the spearhead of the
anti-terrorist, anti-crime, anti-migration policy, at least at a
Despite the reluctance of the Justice ministry to clash with the
domestic lobby of “Law and Order” and their fear to legislatively
control the really uncontrolled and uncontrollable judicial authority
which based on the monstrosity of a law 187 of the penal code concerning
ethical proof and the extreme inquisition perception, interpretation and
abuse does not need to follow the decisions and legal rules but can
freely appreciate answering only to their conscience -a conscience so
defiled and polluted that even Pontius Pilate would find it easy to
answer to. Despite also the two-faced tactic of the Justice ministry to
vote seemingly progressive laws, which however include in their wording
the possibility of non-enforcement by the judges shows at least at a
level of symbolism and not substance, new investments in oppressing
white collar criminality.
This is the conjuncture and these are the incidents. I consider this
judicial struggle i am called to give for my acquittal of all charges in
the appellate court one more moment of struggle against the deep police
state, against the penal oppression and its extreme dogmas. A singular
existential battle where critic and opponent incarnate into the same
institution, that of judicial authority.
Here i would like to stress that just like in the first trial, in the
appellate trial i will not state my innocence and i will not beg any
judge to believe me. I am not innocent. In the class war i chose to side
with the wronged and oppressed, the excluded and the hunted, with the
guilty and the damned.
I organized myself politically in the anarchist milieu with the
ambitious aim of hurting social, political and economic structures of
capital and its state.
However i denied, deny and will again deny the acts the attribute to me.
I was never a member of the CCF, never participated in this specific
robbery and most importantly i never killed and could never kill an
unarmed citizen for any reason or under any circumstances.
FOR ANARCHY, FOR COMMUNISM
