Court decision (today, 26/3) for Giannis Skouloudis, Sokratis Tzifkas, Babis Tsilianidis, Dimitris Dimtsiadis, Dimitris Fessas regarding the case of arson on vehicles of the public electric power corporation (DEI):
Skouloudis – 5 years and 5 months imprisonment
The comrade is considered to have completed 2/5 of his sentence, and therefore he’s expected to be released from prison within the next few days. At the procedural level, a request to the judicial council must be applied first, and then we will wait for the response in order for his release to be officially granted.
Tsilianidis, Dimtsiadis – 2 years and 10 months (suspended sentence)
Fessas, Tzifkas – 2 years and 5 months (suspended sentence)
It must be noted that ‘the 4 of Vyronas’ (Tsilianidis, Fessas, Dimtsiadis and Tzifkas) will stand another trial in Athens, accused of participation in a ‘terrorist’ organization, etc. The comrade Tsilianidis is accused for one more case, of armed robbery at Thessaloniki AHEPA Hospital, for which he has also been ordered to be remanded in custody. Extensive information on today’s court (which only ruled upon the case of arson on DEI vehicles) will be released in the upcoming days.
