UPDATE OF SITUATION OF SOME THESSALONIKI PRISIONERS

by Iberian anarchist comrades Thursday, Jun. 26, 2003 at 12:46 AM

Prisioners charged with silly illusions - Expertise in international terrorism!

Prisioners charged with silly illusions - Expertise in international terrorism!

We have just been informed that the comrade (F), is suffering tortures, having health problems and propensity to anaemia. And now he is portrayed in the media as a "basque libertarian, sought internationally..."(!!!), expert in "international terrorism" (!!)...and presenting him as little less than, as a species of "subcomandante"(!!)

The media campaign, according to Greek comrades, compares to nothing. But they suspect that the message that they want to transmit is that of control of "the dangerous and autochthonous elements " and that all events of this weekend are due to foreign elements... And also, deviate public attention from of the use of gases that are prohibited by Greek laws, gases used in Vietnam by the USA (Cn, Cs).

The comrades with whom we are in contact are still suffering symptoms like discomfort in lungs and eyes.

Twenty-eight persons have their hearing today. The comrade (F) is has it tomorrow, and it seems that want they want to charge him with possession of weapons (!!), so as to hold him for 18 months in preventive prison.

The charges on this companion are very serious, it seems they want to put as "scapegoat" and he could be condemned to up to 15 years of prison (!!!!). THE SITUATION IS VERY SERIOUS

Another companion that is in a very delicate situation is the comrade from Syria, who, as we informed before, will be condemned to the death penalty if he is extradited to his country of origin.

They all have suffered tortures, and continue to suffer tortures at this moment. The comrade (C.) has had his arms completely bruised and he has lost part of his hair, because they pulled it out of his head as torture.

We expect to offer a bank account in support for the comrades shortly.

SOLIDARITY URGENT AND ACTIVE AGAINST THE REPRESSION! ---------------------------------------------------------

from bbc, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/3012780.stm

A British man will appear in a Greek court on Monday, to face charges of throwing petrol bombs during last week's European Union summit.

The 30-year-old, who has not been named, was one of 104 people detained on Saturday, the final day of the three-day summit in Porto Carras.

The British consul in Athens, Donald Holder, said: "The man was allegedly caught throwing these Molotov cocktails at riot police and allegedly having several in his rucksack. He was taken to hospital after badly hurting his arm.

Greek police said a total of 12 foreigners were arrested, including an American, a Cypriot, two Austrians, two Spaniards and a Syrian.

They said 85 explosive devices, clubs, masks and hammers were among the items confiscated from the suspects, after being found in the area of Saturday's disturbances.

THE LATEST SO FAR 24.06.2003 16:34

URGENT GREECE:

Fernando, the activist from Burgos, Spain, detained on the 21st of June in the demonstration against the EU of Thessalonica, is now in a serious situation, according to information that his lawyer gave to La Haine , www.lahaine.org.

Eleceodeotipia, one of the main corporate Greek newspapers, has mounted a media campaign against him with headers like " Basque anarchist sought internationally" and has published that "has pending court cases in 23 Countries".

The judge, who in principle accused him of " possession of incendiary appliances" (a flare a molotov cocktail), has arbitrarily changed the charges, accusing him of "membership to armed band". The press media have created the social opinion that during the demonstrations the police had acted "passively, while the demonstrators destroyed the city", and are using this case to stress the fact that among those demonstrators there was an "international leader of armed band". The lawyer of F. believes it to very possible that they give him preventive prison of 18 months and a prison sentence of various years. It is urgent to develop an extensive campaign of solidarity in the Spanish State and internationally for his support.

La Haine expects to be able to offer more details on the case in the next hours. In the same way, they will open a space so that organisations of solidarity can upload their calls for support for the victims of repression in Thessalonica.
