Anarchists vandalize banks in show of solidarity for jailed robber


Groups of self-styled anarchists vandalized the facades of banks on Akadimias Street in central Athens on Monday during a protest to express solidarity with the jailed robber Tasos Theofilou.

Theofilou has been in prison since his arrest for an armed robbery on the island of Paros in 2012 and a final ruling on his case is expected in the coming days.

If a five-member criminal appeals court accepts a prosecutor's proposal, Theofilou could face a life sentence.
