Notorious urban terrorist Koufontinas receives 2-day prison furlough
Greece’s most notorious urban terrorist, condemned to 11 life sentences for his role in the notorious “November 17” group, has received a two-day furlough from prison officials.
Dimitris Koufontinas (Koufodinas) is set to exit Korydallos prison, billed as a maximum security facility, on Thursday morning.
November 17’s members were responsible for assassinating 23 people and injuring dozens of others in 103 attacks between 1975 and 2002, including foreign diplomats, military personnel, newspaper owners and politicians.
The extremely violent ultra-leftist gang was finally eradicated in the summer of 2002 after a botched bomb planting at the port of Piraeus.
The first initial reactions by opposition political parties were scathing.
