Po­lice foren­sic re­sults find no link to pre­vi­ous crimes

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice foren­sic lab re­sults sug­gest that the two pis­tols found in a mosque last month in the vil­lage of Iliope­tra near the north­east­ern city of Xan­thi are not linked to any crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity, Kathimerini un­der­stands. The two pis­tols, one with a si­lencer, and bul­lets were dis­cov­ered in­side the mosque. Its 47-year-old imam said the guns were not his and that the site is al­ways open and eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble. Po­lice also found a shot­gun in the cleric’s home, but he claimed he had pur­chased it years ago when a li­cense was not re­quired. His lawyer claimed the guns had been planted in the mosque in an at­tempt to “set up” his client.
