  • [01] Three 'Revolutionary Struggle' terrorist group suspects admit involvement in letter to newspaper

    ANA-MPA/Three of the six people arrested and charged with involvement in the Revolutionary Struggle terrorist group in a coordinated police swoop on April 11 have admitted participation in the group in a letter to the weekly newspaper "Pontiki" appearing on Thursday.

    The letter, signed by Panagiota (Pola) Roupa, her husband Nikos Maziotis and Constantine Gournas, also says that Lambros Fountas, a 35-year-old biologist who was killed in a shootout with police in the Dafni district of Athens, was one of their "comrades" in the group.

    In the letter, the three suspects -- who together with the other three detainees have been jailed pending trial -- say they are "proud" of their group, adding that "the struggle will continue".
