Since yesterday, March 23rd, anarchist prisoner on hunger strike Kostas Gournas (convicted Revolutionary Struggle member) has been moved from the type C maximum security prison of Domokos to the provincial hospital in Lamia, where the conditions are indescribably appalling, the prisoners are placed in isolation room-cells, and communication with them becomes difficult if not impossible.
In a brief telephone conversation just before his transfer, the comrade said: “The Ministry of Justice urges us to stop the hunger strike and rely on them… How much ‘reliability’ their commitments have as part of this government is demonstrated every day as they rip out the Memorandum and the implementation laws, cancel the ENFIA single property tax, and request a write-off of a large part of the debt… I only rely on the struggle. I continue the hunger strike.”

Since yesterday morning, March 21st, hunger striker Dimitris Koufontinas (convicted 17N member) has been transferred from the type C maximum security prison of Domokos to the provincial hospital in Lamia, where he’s being held in a room-cell with no window. In addition to the miserable conditions, it becomes difficult, if not impossible, for supporters to communicate with any prisoner who may find themselves moved to this hospital.

The chief warden of Domokos’ Type C high security prison was murdered on Saturday (21/02/2015) evening near the city of Lamia, in central Greece, police said. According to the information received so far, the 47 year-old victim left his house in the area of Kouvela, located between the town of Lamia and Stylida, just before 17.30 to go hunting in the wider area.
As soon as he got into his jeep, a passenger car with two or three individuals approached him and opened fire with Kalashnikovs and a nine-millimeter pistol. The victim was riddled with more than 20 bullets on the head and chest and had no time to react.
Police launched a manhunt to find the suspects and set up road blocks in the wider area but at time of writing had failed to find anything other than empty shells, witness statements and a corpse.
