On April 2007, an uprising in Koridallos prison was held in solidarity to the detainees in Malandrino prisons, who had revolted after the anarchist Yannis Dimitrakis was beaten up [inside the same hellhole]. The revolt in Koridallos prison wings was suppressed by police squads.
On 14 January , 23 prisoners stand trial for ‘disobedience, sedition and inciting attitude’ facing additional penalties of at least 10-year imprisonment.
They stand trial because they claimed their self-evident rights.
The criminal charges against the 23 were filed after the deposits of Koridallos prisons’ officials: Vassilis Lambrakis (chief warden), Panagiotis Panagopoulos (deputy warden), Vassilis Kalogeropoulos (jailer).
