N17 claims be­ing checked

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Supreme Court pros­e­cu­tor Xeni Dimitriou has asked the coun­try’s coun­tert­er­ror­ism ser­vice to in­ves­ti­gate al­le­ga­tions made ear­lier in the week by the jailed founder and leader of the now de­funct Novem­ber 17 ter­ror group that there were still eight mem­bers at large.

Se­nior rank­ing po­lice of­fi­cials have de­nied the claim made by Alexan­dros Yiotopou­los, who is serv­ing mul­ti­ple life terms at the Ko­ry­dal­los max­i­mum­se­cu­rity prison. They say that all mem­bers of the group, which was dis­banded 14 years ago, have ap­peared in court.

Yiotopou­los made his claim in a let­ter sent to Eth­nos news­pa­per on Mon­day.
