November 17's Xeros vows to resume terrorist attacks in video message

Christodoulos Xeros, the November 17 gunman who disappeared earlier this month while on a prison furlough, has issued a video message vowing to return to terrorist action.

“One day of freedom is better than 40 years in prison or as a slave,” said Xeros in a message that was posted on the Indymedia website.

In his statement, Xeros pledges that the “rebel’s rifle will resound again.” “We want rights and we will gain them while holding weapons in our hands,” added Xeros, who spoke with photos of Che Guevara, Communist World War II resistance fighter Aris Velouchiotis and Greek independence fighters Theodoros Kolokotronis and Georgios Karaiskakis in the background.

The 55-year-old musical instrument maker disappeared on Sunday, January 5 while on a nine-day furlough. He is serving six consecutive life sentences plus an additional 25 years in prison for his role in six assassinations as well as other terrorist activities carried out by November 17.

In his message, Xeros rails against the political system, Greece’s poor economic conditions and the local media.

The November 17 member also claims it was a personal success the fact that he convinced prison authorities to grant him furloughs.

Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias refused to comment on Xeros’s comments. “I have no reason to comment on the thoughts of any terrorist, especially Christodoulos Xeros,” said the minister.

“The only thing I can do is to assure Greek society that authorities are faithfully carrying out their duty to put in jail those who belong there.”
