Letter by Michal Pawlak from Koridallos Prison (Greece)

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

Update: Michal Pawlak has been released on bail pending trial.

Michal Pawlak is a comrade from Poland that was arrested on December 6th , 2009 during the demonstrations for the one year since Alexis murder and the uprising that followed. He has remained in prison awaiting trial ever since. As is usual he has been accused by the cops based on unsubstantiated and circumstantial evidence, as for example his t-shirt that had some anti-cop slogan written on it. On June 1st Michal stood in front of the board of judges who will decide in the next couple of weeks whether his imprisonment will be continued. At the same time the cops-murderers of Alexis have been set free until the end of their trial as due to a load of legal tricks their 18th month pre-trial detention expired before a court ruling on their case. Even though their imprisonment will in no way give us a sense that “justice has been served” or extinguish our rage against all those who destroy our lives, nonetheless if this example serves as anything it is to remind us who the so-called justice system is here to protect.

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

Polish anarchist, Michal Pawlak, was arrested in Greece on 6th of December 2009 and is awaiting trial for making explosives in the infamous Koridallos prison in Athens.

According to the Greek law, the court will consider his release only after half a year of detention, in June this year. Besides that Michal remains in a high spirit, asking the comrades outside to send him anarchist literature and press in Polish or English to help him in keeping hope for the coming release.
