The anarchist prisoner Giannis Michailidis [sometimes the name is reported as Yannis and the surname as Mihailidis] escaped a few days ago from the so-called rural prison of Tyrintha (Tiryns), in Peloponnese. He was arrested on 1 February 2013 following the double robbery that took place in Velventos  (Kozani region, in Greece), along with the anarchists Nikos Romanos, Dimitris Politis and Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos (for the same facts on 30 April 2013 were also arrested the fugitives anarchists Argyris Dalios, Fivos Harisis, Giannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis — not all of them were convicted of robberies). The comrade, before the escape, was serving a sentence of 16 years and 4 months, imposed with the sentence that followed the trial regarding the facts of Velventos. Furthermore, in 2015 he was sentenced to 15 years for charges linked to an attack on the police on May 18, 2011, in Pefki, during a police check (two policemen were wounded and the anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos was arrested, wounded as well). Giannis is also known as “the archer of Syntagma” since, in February 2011, in the clashes during a general strike, he was arrested for hitting the riot police that protected the Greek parliament in Syntagma Square (Athens) with a bow and arrow.
The police, according to the press, are already investigating the incident.
Long flight for the anarchist Giannis Michailidis!

From Athens IMC via OccupiedLondon:
We steal a couple of words from the cells of the detention centre where we are held hostage, in order to state our aims and our intentions and to clear up the air regarding the recent events.
As Anarchists, we deem the choice of a bank robbery as a conscious act of resistance. Our act did not aim at the creation of personal wealth. The attack against the temples of capital is part of our revolutionary activity as a whole. (more…)

The comrades Dimitris Politis and Giannis Mixailidis are transferred to Koridallos prison and now they are with the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire! They are strong and healthy. Yesterday they brought them to the court that is currently running about the case of the ‘safe-house’ in Volos, the day before they were taken to the prosecutor for the warrants they have about that case.
Today, the fucking pigs transferred them to Kozanis court to the local prosecutor about the double robbery at Belvendo Kozanis! They will also transfer there the other two comrades arrested (Nikos Rwmanos and Andreas Mpourzoukos) but they are not jailed yet!!!
There is no reason to sleep calm, judges, politicians, police and other shit.
Solidarity to Dimitris Politis and Giannis Mixailidis
