Greece: Latest Update about the Attack Against Revolutionary Struggle Member Nikos Maziotis


22.12.17: The attack against Nikos Maziotis took place in his cell. About 10 prisoners were involved in the attack. Of these, 2 or 3 took a more active role than the others.

Nikos Maziotis was hit mainly on the head and ribs and was stabbed in the abdomen. Despite the cowardly attack from about 10 prisoners and the physical strain from his 36-day hunger strike, the comrade put up strong resistance.

The targeted assassination attack against the comrade was not completed because Kurdish and Turkish prisoners intervened and immediately informed the solidarity network outside the prison walls about the attack.

Nikos Maziotis is hospitalized with many injuries at the Korydallos Prison Hospital and we expect more news soon about the state of his health.
