Maziotis gang ‘nets’ 15 mln euros

Police have linked fugitive Revolutionary Struggle mastermind Nikos Maziotis to six armed robberies that are believed to have netted him and his accomplices around 15 million euros in cash, Kathimerini has learned.

Maziotis and his partner Pola Roupa have been on the run since June 2012, when they failed to attend their trial. Police believe that a total of seven people are part of the team that Maziotis has put together to rob banks.

Officers said that in all the robberies believed to have been carried out by the fugitive terrorist and his accomplices, the robbers wore bullet-proof vests and were heavily armed. It is believed that Maziotis shot and injured a policeman outside a bank in Achaia in March.
