Jailed terrorists believed to be behind Coca-Cola sabotage plan

Jailed members of Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, a domestic urban guerrilla group, are believed to be behind a plot to sabotage bottles of Coca-Cola Light and Nestea in Greece, police sources have told Kathimerini.

Officials told the newspaper that the go-ahead for the plan, dubbed “Green Nemesis,” came from inside the maximum-security Korydallos Prison in central Athens. Coca-Cola, which makes both beverages in Greece, on Thursday said it was removing 500 ml bottles of the soft drinks from stores in Athens and Thessaloniki after FAI/IRF, an urban guerrilla group that has in the past signed joint proclamations with Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, threatened to tamper with the beverages by injecting hydrochloric acid into them.

FAI/IRF said that it was an act of solidarity with members of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire group and two people being held in Spain on suspicion of planting explosive devices.
