Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The 48-hour prison fur­lough granted to Novem­ber 17 hit­man Dim­itris Koufo­d­i­nas on Fri­day was a mis­take that im­pacts Greece’s in­ter­na­tional im­age, former US am­bas­sador to Greece Ni­cholas Burns has told Kathimerini.

Burns, now a Har­vard Uni­ver­sity pro­fes­sor, has joined a loud cho­rus of peo­ple who have con­demned Koufo­d­i­nas’s sec­ond tem­po­rary re­lease in three months.

In honor of the do­mes­tic ter­ror group’s vic­tims, Burns posted a photo af­ter Koufo­d­i­nas’s first fur­lough in Novem­ber of a plaque he ded­i­cated as am­bas­sador in mem­ory of “all vic­tims of ter­ror­ism in Greece,” list­ing five who had been at­tached to the US Mis­sion. Burns told Kathimerini N17’s lead­ers do not de­serve mercy and de­serve to stay in prison.
