The Athens Appeals Council today accepted the application of anarchist
comrade Grigoris Tsironis with which he asked for the replacement of his
house arrest. Thus the conditions were replaced with a ban from leaving
the country, he is also banned from leaving the region of south Attica,
he has to remain at the address given as his permanent residence, he
cannot spend the night away from this residence and must appear at the
police station in his area every 5 days.
Grigoris was released after the 18 month pre-trial detention period had
expired on December 7th, 2017 and in a further outburst of judicial
arbitrariness they imposed an innovative condition of house arrest.
Despite the fact the bail conditions remain strict, the decision to lift
his house arrest is a first win for him as well as the solidarity
movement. It puts a first mound to the methods of the police-judicial
complex which gathers all the elements a state of emergency in the face
of the comrade as well the case he is accused of (Distomo robbers). DNA,
anti-terror law, penalization of personal and family relations, the
vengeance of police and judicial authority.
