Athens, Greece: Two anarchists and a female friend of theirs in pre-trial detention
από IMC Athens 09/06/2007 3:38 μμ.
On Tuesday 5th of June, two anarchists and a friend of theirs (all
20-22 years old) were arrested after trying to attack a car of the
municipal police in the neighborhood of Paleo Faliro in Athens. During
their arrest, all three were beaten up by the
police to the point of collapse.
After being beaten further and tortured (mentally and physically)
at the Police Headquarters in Athens, the Attorney General order the
pre-trial detention of all three.
The condition of the girl is particularly serious and alarming
since she is now facing health problems; the vicious attack of the cops
and their severe beatings have caused her a nervous breakdown. At dawn
she was transfered to two different hospitals in Athens, where the
doctors only offered her first aid and refused to accept her for
further treatment. The doctors treating her currently (her personal
doctor together with the police doctor) both speak of a serious
psychotic-related amnesia condition caused by extreme stress during
her arrest and detention. Despite this fact the girl is still held at the Police
headquarters while her lawyers are trying to get her to another Athens
hospital. Should this not happen, she will be transfered to and held at
the mental health hospital of the Korydallos prison in Athens.
Meanwhile, the two anarchists have already been transfered to prison.
