Convicted urban terrorists starts hunger strike after latest request for furlough denied
Greece’s most notorious convicted terrorist on Thursday announced a hunger strike, after being refused prison furlough for the second time in a row.
Dimitris Koufodinas, convicted in multiple homicides for which the now disbanded ultra-leftist terror group “November 17” claimed responsibility, had previously been granted six furloughs, beginning with two-day exits from jail and graduating to four-day releases.
However, in February the relevant prosecutor on a prison council assigned the correctional institution near the city of Volos, where Koufodinas is serving out 11 life sentences, objected to another furlough.
Conversely, the prison farm’s warden and a social worker on the same council approved of the request.
