Magistrate visits Maziotis in prison to take deposition

A magistrate visited Korydallos Prison Monday with the aim of taking a deposition from terrorist Nikos Maziotis, who was arrested last week.

Maziotis was moved from Evangelismos Hospital to the jail on Saturday on his own request even though doctors advised him to stay for treatment following his shoulder operation.

The leader of the Revolutionary Struggle urban guerrilla group was shot in the shoulder during his arrest in central Athens on Wednesday.

He has been placed in a specially constructed room in the prison, which has bullet proof windows and CCTV.

Maziotis refused to answer a magistrate’s questions on Saturday, only describing his professions as “revolutionary.”
