Fugitive Vassilis Palaiocostas…

Policemen in riot gear stand outside the Thessaloniki courthouse where two suspected accomplices of captured fugitive Vassilis Palaiocostas faced questioning yesterday. The suspects, aged 28 and 30, were remanded in custody after denying involvement in the June kidnapping of high-profile businessman Giorgos Mylonas, believed to have been masterminded by Palaiocostas. A group of self-styled anarchists expressing solidarity with the suspects scuffled with police outside the courthouse.
