Court to mull sen­tence re­view

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Supreme Court pros­e­cu­tor yes­ter­day pro­posed that an ap­peal by jailed Greek an­ar­chist and rob­ber Nikos Romanos for le­niency due to good be­hav­ior be granted while re­ject­ing another for him to be cleared of a ter­ror­ism con­vic­tion. Romanos is serv­ing an 18-year prison sen­tence on charges of “lone ter­ror­ism” while he was found not to have links to guer­rilla group Con­spir­acy of the Cells of Fire. The 25year-old, who has been do­ing a uni­ver­sity course from At­tica’s high-se­cu­rity Ko­ry­dal­los Prison, is seek­ing a re­view of his sen­tence due to good be­hav­ior. If the Supreme Court ac­cepts the pros­e­cu­tor’s ap­peal, his case will be re­tried by an ap­peals court which is ex­pected to re­duce his term.
