Prison sweeps turn up dozens of contraband weapons


Inspections by guards at the Domokos prison in Fthiotida early on Thursday resulted in the confiscation of a plethora of weapons, including knives and skewers.

A similar sweep on Attica’s high-security Korydallos Prison resulted in the seizure of homemade knives and clubs, as well as small quantities of narcotics. Yesterday’s was the latest in a series of sweeps at the country’s biggest penitentiaries, which continue to turn up weapons, drugs and cellphones.
