  • [01] Part of ransom found

    Police on Monday confiscated weapons and retrieved part of the ransom paid for the release of the president of the Federation of Industries of Northern Greece (SBBE) George Mylonas to abductors by his family in June 2006, in ongoing investigations in Thessaloniki following last week's arrest of the kidnapping's mastermind, escaped convict Vassilis Paleokostas, and seven accomplices.

    Thessaloniki Security Police chief Dimitris Papadopoulos told ANA-MPA that an early-morning search of an apartment in the Peraia region of the northern Greek capital, which had been rented in recent months by the kidnapping ring and was used as one of its hideouts.

    He said that 2.9 million euros in marked bills from the ransom money, four submachine guns, two pistols, two handgrenades, 1910 bullet, silencers, gas masks and other objects were found in the apartment.

    The weaponry will be examined by ELAS (Greek Police) ballistics experts, while the investigations are still ongoing.
