On the 6th of June 2014, nearly 40 comrades attended the second day of appeals hearing in the courthouse of Thessaloniki. Meanwhile, comrade Babis Tsilianidis —who has always refused to attend court proceedings— was in Koridallos prison (Athens) waiting for the outcome.
To cut a long story short, the prosecutor asked for the comrade’s acquittal, stating that the scarf(/handkerchief) was found too far from the scene of the robbery, and a DNA sample alone (in this case a mixture) is not sufficient evidence to convict anybody.
Finally the court acquitted Babis Tsilianidis ‘because of doubts’. After almost 3.5 years of captivity, the comrade is able to walk out to the street again.
There are still many anarchists behind prison walls. Freedom for all!
