Report about the case of the escape attempt of members of CCF (Greece)
It was 3rd of January when after a wide operation of anti-terrorist police, the wanted comrade Ch.Xiros was arrested in the region of Anavissos. At the same time, there was detected a hideout in the same region. After a stake-out of this property cops discovered a large amount of ammunition and firearms (8 Kalashnikovs, 1 RPG, 3 rockets, hundreds of bullets, more than 150 kilos of explosives etc.), drawings regarding an escape plan of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members and a fake ID of comrade Angeliki. (who was visiting members of CCF in prison). The very same night EKAM (special forces of anti-terrorist police) and officers of anti-terrorist police raided all the cells of CCF members in prison, and the comrades Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, as well as the comrades Spiros Mandilas and Andreas Tsavdaridis, were transferred to a solitary confinement wing in a dungeon under Korydallos prison where there are no other prisoners.
In the next days, the anti-terrorist police declares comrade Angeliki is a fugitive and starts an intense man-hunt for her arrest (after giving her photo in publicity through all TV channels), and they discover another safehouse in the region of Loutraki where they found dozens of ready-made bombs, a gun, and two stolen vehicles (1 jeep and 1 van).
The Minister of Public Order and the Chief of Police are making official statements announcing that police managed to prevent an escape plan of the members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. According to this announcement, some comrades would attack and blow up the outside wall of the prison wing that members of CCF were held in, with a mega-bomb of 150 kilos of explosives put in a trapped vehicle (stolen van) and with the Kalashnikovs and the RPG would strike armed guards at the guard-houses of the prison.
After that, they would escape with CCF members in stolen vans which they intended to change with other stolen vehicles during the route of escape with the safehouses as destinations.
The imprisoned members of CCF published two texts (“It was worth a try“, “Communique of War“) in which they express their solidarity with comrade Angeliki and they closed with the phrase “Nothing is over…. Everything continues.”
