  • [01] Four terrorist suspects indicted

  • [01] Four terrorist suspects indicted

    ANA-MPA/Indictments on three counts of felony and four counts of misdemeanors were handed down on Friday by the public prosecutor for four persons, aged 20 and 21, who were arrested on Wednesday night on charges of participation in a terrorist organisation, and their names were released, under the provisions of the counter-terrorism law.

    The four, three men and a woman, were arrested by the police counter-terrorism squad Wednesday night after the discovery earlier in the afternoon of a safehouse belonging to a terrorist group in the northern Athens suburb of Halandri.

    During a raid on the safehouse, police arrested the 21-year old tenant, the owner's 20-year-old son and a 20-year-old woman, and a fourth person was arrested in related investigations in Galatsi, while a fifth person brought in for questioning from the Galatsi investigation was released.

    The four detainees, identified as Haralambos Hatzimichelakis, Emmanuil Yiospas, Myrto Pangeloglou and Panayiotis Masouras, appeared early Friday morning before prosecutor Eleni Raikou.

    The charges include participation in a criminal organisation, procurement and possession of explosive materials, two counts of causing explosions and thus endangering human lives, grand larceny, violation of the law on explosives, flares and fire-crackers, and procurement and possession of narcotic substances for own use.

    The charge of causing an explosion endangering lives refers to bomb attacks at the home of former deputy Public Order minister Panayiotis Hinofotis, on July 12, at the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace, on September 2 and on Wednesday (Sept. 23) at the entrance of the fourth-floor apartment of main opposition PASOK former minister Gerassimos Arsenis and his wife, PASOK officer on economic affairs Louka Katseli in Kolonaki.

    The case file will be assigned to an examining magistrate, to whom the detainees will give testimony on Tuesday, after seeking on Friday an extension in order to prepare their testimonies

    The examining magistrate is also expected to issue arrest warrants for another six individuals, including an Albanian national, as Raikou has already consented to the warrants, effectively rendering the six as "wanted".
