 "November 17" sends propaganda sheetIn its today’s second issue in Athens, "Eleftherotypia" newspaper carries a propaganda sheet sent allegedly by the terrorist organization “November 17”. According to it the organization has sustained a serious blow in the “centre”, while it demands just trials for the arrested. Otherwise, it will proceed with the abduction of personages in order to exchange them with its arrested members. It also stresses that the combat will continue despite the blow the organization has received.
Additionally, it refers to the names of individuals that had not been arrested and that the authorities consider as suspects, adding that they are not its members.
Moreover, it refers to important evidence discovered in the organization’s hideout at Damareos street, but which the police has not revealed.
The propaganda letter carries the organization’s star, which looks slightly different, while it is not clear whether the letter was written on a typewriter or computer.
Meanwhile, in an interview with NET 105.8, Press spokesman Christos Protopapas refused to comment on the propaganda letter, saying that it would be better for the authorities to study it and announce its outcomes. Similar statements were made by ex New Democracy MP Andreas Andrianopoulos.
At the same time, 11 of the 14 members of the terrorist organization "November 17" have already been imprisoned at Korydallos prison. Following his testimony to the appeal magistrate Patroklos Tselendis was imprisoned, while earlier Alexandros Giotopoulos, Pavlos Serifis and Costas Tselios had been imprisoned. Earlier, Tselios had asked for psychiatric assistance.
Savvas Xiros will remain at hospital for more than ten days due to infection on this right hand, while Nikos Papanastasiou will testify today.
On a relative development, the Police announced yesterday that the guns discovered at two "November 17" hideouts were used for the assassination of Mompheratos and Rousetis in 1985 and in many robberies from 1991-2000. Additionally, the electric typewriter found at Patmos hideout was used for the propaganda letters sent by the organization.

Finally, Prime Minister Costas Simitis has stated that the recent developments on the front of terrorism have created a positive climate for the government, stressing at the same time the government must continue its work in order to solve the peoples’ problems.
