N17 hitman undergoes tests, returns to prison

Convicted November 17 terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas was taken to Volos General Hospital on Friday after feeling unwell but was transferred back to the agricultural jail where he is serving multiple life sentences after undergoing tests.

Koufodinas, who last month went on a hunger strike after authorities refused to grant him a fresh furlough from a farm prison in Volos, was reportedly transferred under tight security to the hospital. Reports said he was reliant on a wheelchair.

The former N17 hitman ended his hunger strike on May 23 after the Supreme Court accepted an appeal filed by its top prosecutor against the rejection of his latest request for prison leave, paving the way for a review.

The 61-year-old has been granted six furloughs over the past year-and-a-half.
