Suspects in Conspiracy breakout case released

A 36-year-old woman alleged to have played a leading role in a thwarted plan to get members of the guerrilla group Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire out of Korydallos Prison was granted conditional release on Wednesday after defending herself before an investigating magistrate.

According to sources, the woman claimed that she lived close to the mother of two convicted Conspiracy members, Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, on the island of Salamina, who is also being questioned by police, but that she had no knowledge of any terrorist activities or plots.

Meanwhile, a 32-year-old man believed to be an accomplice of convicted November 17 member Christodoulos Xeros was also given conditional release after testifying before a magistrate.

Both he and the 36-year-old woman were banned from leaving the country and told to report to their local police precinct regularly.
