Valavani was beaten by cop agents. Comrade G. Michailidis took full responsibility for the weapons found in the car they were driving.
G. Michailidis is being held in the prisons in Malandrino, K. Athanasopoulou in Thebes, and D. Valavani in Korydallos.

Information on the arrests of anarchists K. Athanassopoulou, D. Valavani and G. Michailidis by telephone communication, 6.2.20
As is already known, the 3 comrades were arrested at 9.30am on Wednesday 29/1.
From the time of arrest until 19.00 pm they were not allowed to contact anyone. The following day, the genetic material was violently taken from the two comrades, after Mihailidis’ DNA was already in their possession. Particularly Dimitra Valavani was hit despite their having been informed of a previous head injury. Her constant demand to call her doctor has been repeatedly denied. Instead, she was taken to hospital after 3 hours, where she was given irrelevant examinations.
All three held a negative attitude during the interrogation. The next day they were taken to an investigator and prosecutor, where they declared their anarchist political identity.
It is worth noting that in addition to the standard investigations in their homes, the counter-terrorism twice entered Dimitra’s grandfather’s house, where he was subsequently sampled for DNA.
The three comrades are strong psychologically and will send more extensive information when they manage to send a communique text.
STRENGTH TO D. VALAVANI, G. MICHAILIDIS AND K. ATHANASOPOULOU.
