Vlastos handed five-year prison term

Convicted criminal Panayiotis Vlastos was handed a five-year jail sentence by a court in Trikala, central Greece, on Tuesday after iron files were found in his cell.

Vlastos attempted to break out of Trikala Prison last month with the help of a helicopter.

The breakout was foiled by prison guards who exchanged shots with Vlastos’s accomplices.
