    [02] Inmate who killed prison guard found dead in his cell

    ANA/MPA---An Albanian national serving a life sentence for homicide, Ili Kareli, who stabbed to death 46 year-old police sergeant George Tsironis in the Malandrinos prison on Tuesday 25 March, was found dead late on Thursday in his cell at Nigrita prison.

    According to the president of Nigrita guards Haris Consolides, the Albanian was transferred to Nigrita prison around 16.00 on Thursday and was in isolation for precautionary reasons.

    Justice Ministry has ordered an investigation.

    Kareli attacked the guard after a request for parole was turned down by authorities in February. He handed a note to the guard to distract him, which said, among other things, "Have you not had enough of my life for so many years? I have been inside since 1977. You are continuing to hold me. Why didn't you let me see my mother alive and allow me to build a family? Now it's necessary to take a life from among you".

    The prisoner had been sentenced to jail over theft in 1997, released in 2006 on conditions, and reincarcerated in 2007 for killing a couple during a break-in at their house.
