CCF Escape case: Statement of Giorgos Polydoros (Greece)

The text was sent to mass media:

From the first moment, we have claimed responsibility for the escape plan from Korydallos prison, when it was uncloaked, we the 10 members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

The last five days, we see our relatives and their friends being dragged and being assailed, who have nothing to do with the case and, indeed, detaining the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the second one’s wife.

The accusation of involvement in [terrorist] organization, they are charged with by the counter-terrorism unit, is ridiculous and unsustainable. They’re calling a 60-year-old mother and the wife members [of CCF] and detain them, under the pretext that they’re suspected of fleeing. We are talking about people with permanent residences and who were visiting us in the visiting hours in prison. Who are the trashes of counter-terrorism unit fooling with? We are experiencing a moment where the counter-terrorism unit is doing whatever it wants and has gone beyond any limit of amorality, without giving an account to anyone. Its political enemies are us and not our relatives. If it wants to strike someone, let it strike us and leave the clowning aside.

We also know that today are the evaluations of police, so everyone understands what a dirty game is being played in the background and the show they have set, in order to get promotions.

From Monday 2/3, we all ten members of the Cells have begun a hunger strike until death, in order for the four relatives and their friends to be set free. They have nothing to do with our actions. They will either set them free, or let them prepare themselves to count the first dead political prisoners.

At the same time, we support the hunger strike taking place in prisons, for the abolition of the counter-terrorism law, the hood-law and the C’ Type prisons. The situation the counter-terrorism unit created for our families is the over-the-top consequence of the terror law and opens new doors.

Giorgos Polydoros
