Greek guerrilla group assassin Dimitris Koufodinas granted two-day leave from prison


A leading member of November 17, Greece’s most deadly guerrilla group, has been granted another two-day leave from prison.

Dimitris Koufodinas is expected to leave the maximum security prison of Korydallos in Athens on Friday at 9 a.m.

Koufodinas, who is serving several life terms for his role in the extreme left terrorist group that was dismantled by Greek authorities in 2002, was granted a furlough for the first time in November. The decision sparked strong reactions from the families of the victims, the political opposition, as well as US and British officials.
