N17 hitman on hunger strike over prison leave


Dimitris Koufodinas, a jailed former member of the now defunct November 17 urban terror group, was on hunger strike for a second day Thursday.

Koufodinas, who is serving 11 life sentences, said in announcement posted on an anti-establishment website on Wednesday that he is demanding regular furloughs and the abolition of the Supreme Court prosecutor’s veto power over his requests for prison leave.
