Maziotis taken to hospital for medical checks

Nikos Maziotis, the head of the Revolutionary Struggle terrorist group who is being held at Diavata Prison in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, was on Friday taken to the city’s Papanikolaou Hospital for a medical check.

Maziotis sustained injuries to his right arm during a shootout with police in central Athens that led to his arrest last month and had to undergo surgery.

After the examination, Maziotis is expected to return to Diavata, where he has been kept since July 26.
