Thir­teen mem­bers of the gang have been ar­rested while au­thor­i­ties are look­ing for an­other 39.

In raids across Athens, po­lice have lo­cated 33,000 of bot­tled spir­its, more than 2,600 bot­tles of tsipouro and ouzo, 11 bar­rels of tsipouro, 13 vats of ethanol and thou­sands of well-known brand la­bels. A file has been opened against those ar­rested for run­ning a crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion.
