Korydallos Prison demolition to continue

Deputy Justice Minister Giorgos Petalotis informed local officials in Korydallos on Thursday that the women?s wing of the maximum-security prison in the Piraeus suburb would be completely demolished by October and the plot would then be handed over to the local authority.

The demolition began in January last year, when the inmates were moved to other jails.

The municipality has not decided what to do with the space.
