Anti-establishment protesters storm Athens appeals court

A group of around six or seven people stormed into the building housing the Athens appeals court on Monday morning and scattered flyers from the seventh floor of the building in support of terrorist suspect Costas Sakkas and bank robber Marios Seisidis who were to testify in the court later in the day.

The pair is to answer to additional charges lodged by appeals court prosecutor Eftyhis Nikopoulos.

Seisidis, 37, faces additional charges of membership of the terrorist group Revolutionary Struggle after his fingerprints were found on books and maps in the home of group member Grigoris Tsironis.

Sakkas, who has already been convicted of membership of another terror group Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, now also faces charges of belonging to Revolutionary Struggle after his prints were found on a rented car used by the jailed anarchist and bank robber Giorgos Petrakakos.
