Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A group of con­victs from Corfu Prison, whose es­cape tun­nel was dis­cov­ered on Satur­day, had cur­tains cov­er­ing their cell doors, ac­cord­ing to new de­tails about their thwarted plan that emerged yesterday. Ac­cord­ing to the head of the prison, who tes­ti­fied be­fore a pros­e­cu­tor yesterday, makeshift knifes and dig­ging tools were found in their cells. The pris­on­ers had been hid­ing earth from their dig un­der the beds in their cells, he added. It also emerged that the pris­on­ers had been lit­er­ally inches from free­dom when their plan was thwarted on Satur­day morn­ing. A man walk­ing his dog near the prison heard the sounds of dig­ging un­der­ground af­ter his pet stopped at the spot.
