During the night, specifically from 00.30 until 7-8am, special forces of the police together with mixed units of police and prosecutors, carried out extensive searches in the 1st and 4th wing of Koridallos prisons.
The state mechanisms raided with superiority of power and an intention to humiliate the prisoners. specifically the searches were done 2 cells at a time and 4-5 prisoners were against dozens of fully armed EKAM (special forces),who tied the prisoners behind their back and had them on their knees while they made them look at the wall as long as the search was underway, whoever resisted this sadistic hazing was beaten by the police forces. All cells in the two wings were searched, objects and devices were smashed while the provocations continued by the police since they threw all clothes in the garbage, destroyed their stuff and threw food and other products on the floor.
The state carries out exercises fro imposing and controlling who will speak of human rights when all is bypassed before the dogma of law and order. like we said prisoners were beaten and dozens of others were violently transferred to other prisons, while the cells did not open until 11am.
Against one more move of imposition we will remain in the yards of our wings until 8pm and we will return to our cells after 10pm tonight. We demand to know the reason of the raids by the police, and the correctional service together with the ministry of justice should give us an explanation for the autarchy, broken cells, beatings and the provocations by the police.
Let’s create communities of solidarity and dignity towards the state brutality.
