Greek anarchist rearrested after fingerprints found at Conspiracy safe house

Anarchist Costas Sakkas, who was granted conditional release in July after going on hunger strike to protest the fact that he had been held in detention for two-and-a-half years, was arrested again on Thursday by members of Greece’s anti-terrorist squad.

An arrest warrant had been issued earlier after fingerprints matching the 30-year-old’s were found at one of the safe houses used by the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group.

The property is in Halandri, northeastern Athens, and was first raided in 2010.

Sakkas was first arrested in December of that year.
