November 17th Leader Speaks Out

Alexandros-GiotopoulosAlexandros Giotopoulos, the leader of the November 17th terrorist organization, spoke out following yesterday’s reappearance of Christodoulos Xeros. In a letter sent to the newspaper Eleutherotypia, Giotopoulos has raised questions regarding the circumstances surrounding his arrest as well as Xeros’ escape.
In the letter, Giotopoulos describes a “ghost” fingerprint found in his partner’s home in Leipsous and in a hideout, which was never identified and which he claims never actually existed. Giotopoulos comes to the conclusion that this was “constructed evidence” against him by the Greek Counter-Terrorist and Greek Intelligence services which “can be used by the media today to prove that there are members of November 17th which haven’t been arrested.”
Giotopoulos also raises serious questions about how November 17th member and now fugitive Christodoulos Xeros was able to disappear. “Why was he given a free pass to run around anywhere he wished to, to the head guard’s office, the Nuclei, the most important inmates? Who gave the order? Of course, it wasn’t the warden or some head guard. They don’t have the authority and can’t undertake the responsibility.”
“The order,” Giotopoulos writes, “came from above,” and more specifically from “Greek Counter-Terrorist and Greece ‘s Intelligence services, and thus from the Government which oversees them.”
Giotopoulos compares the furloughs of convicted murderer and member of November 17th, Vassilis Tzortzatos with that of Christodoulos Xeros. According to Giotopoulos, during the two furloughs given to Tzortzatos to visit his home, six counter-terrorism units were under or near his house, while there were none for Xeros who “was in a village.”
Giotopoulos wonders how the Greek government and the various intelligence services, including the American CIA, weren’t aware that Christodoulos had been granted six furloughs in the space of a year and a half. “What had they done to prevent his possible escape? Nothing,” he concludes.
