  • [01] Xiros: Another 'N17' suspect provided 'ideological support'

    01/09/2002 23:24:53

    One of the most enigmatic suspects in the unprecedented ''November 17'' investigation has reportedly named another jailed suspect a man who has repeatedly claimed he did not know he was consorting with the notorious urban terrorist cell -- as a more-or-less leading figure within the group.

    In providing additional testimony to an investigating magistrate, Christodoulos Xiros charged that Theologos Psaradellis was ?a right-hand accomplice? of alleged N17 leader Alexandros Giotopoulos, adding that Psaradellis offered ?ideological support? for the terror groups members.

    Additionally, Xiros again maintained that Dimitris Koufodinas was N17s ?operational chief?, before claiming that new cadres had no ideological standing because veteran members had ?retired?.

    Psaradellis, who along with Christodoulos Xiros and Giotopoulos is currently jailed at an Athens-area prison awaiting trial on numerous felony counts, has repeatedly denied that he had any involvement with ''N17'', although he has admitted to participating in a 1986 bank robbery.

    In a related development, an eyewitness to the botched bombing attempt at the port of Piraeus in late June that provided authorities with their greatest breakthrough in efforts to eradicate N17, said over the weekend that a third person was at the scene that evening, besides Savvas Xiros who was injured during the incident and, according to indictments, fugitive Koufodinas.
