Anarchist Militant Stamboulos Jailed in Greece Pending Trial

maziotis-staboulos-660_0AP – Greek judicial authorities say they have decided to jail Andonis Stamboulos, 31, pending trial on several charges including membership in a terrorist organization.
Stamboulos was arrested Thursday in a police operation. Greek Police said he carried plans for a weekend attack on the headquarters of the ruling New Democracy party and a list of potential high-profile targets.
Authorities said Stamboulos refused to cooperate with examining magistrates in a nearly three-hour interrogation session.
He is accused of being an associate of Nikos Maziotis, a leader of the far-left militant group Revolutionary Struggle, which has previously planted bombs and fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece.
Stamboulos sent a message after his arrest to a far-left website proclaiming himself a revolutionary anarchist.
