  • [01] Terrorist Maziotis' accomplice among robbers of Distomo National Bank

    ANA/MPA---The three armed robbers who stormed into a branch of National Bank of Greece in Distomo, Viotia on Friday, taking an estimated 300,000 euros and a hostage to aid their escape are known to their authorities, said police sources on Sunday.

    The same sources claim that evidence lead to the conclusion that one of the robbers is Giorgos Petrakakos aged 35, who is wanted as accomplice of terrorist Nikos Maziotis while the other two robbers are also known to authorities for armed robberies and other serious crimes.

    The robbery took place at 14:00 on Friday when the three men entered shortly before closing time and held the staff at gunpoint. According to witnesses, they had changed their faces so that they could not be recognised and they escaped in a Toyota RAV4 four-wheel drive car that they later abandoned and set alight at Antikyra.

    They then boarded an inflatable dinghy that they used to reach Kato Loutra, Xylokastro where they let the hostage go and made their getaway using unknown means.

    [02] Ancient Amphipolis tomb entrance gradually revealed

    ANA/MPA---The archaeological excavation at Kasta Tumulus in Ancient Amphipolis continues normally, said the Culture Ministry in an announcement on Sunday.

    According to the announcement "ten more stones, part of the seventh and eighth row of the sealing wall were removed with three more remaining of the eleven-row stone wall.

    The adornment of the next part of the entrance of the tomb was revealed which is the same as the decoration of the side walls. A white coloured fresco that mimics the marble enclosure".

    Meanwhile, the side walls of the antechamber covered with Thassos marble and adorned on the upper part with ionic capitals with traces of black and red colour are gradually revealed.
