Today was announced the final sentence at the court of appeals for comrade
Giannis Dimitrakis. The sentence after the fusions is 12,5 years of
imprisonment (less than the 35 years he got at the first trial).
All together he was found guilty for the robbery in the national bank on
Solonos str, (7 years imprisonment), guilty for mental support in the
attempted homicide of the guard of the bank (6 years imprisonment), guilty
for participating in a gang (4 years imprisonment), guilty for using a gun
(2 years imprisonment). He was not recognized with mitigations but with
the fusion of the sentences the final sentence is 12.5 years. The sentence
he has to serve is 3/5 so Giannis Dimitrakis has to serve 7.5 years. He
has already served almost 5 years.
The room was full of supporters, that burst out in slogans and clapping
after the announcement of the decision. The presence of the cops was
discreet without EKAM (greek special forces) and masked ones as at
previous trials. The speeches and points made of the defence lawyers were
remarkable and they didn't speak of a "victory" ofcourse but for a
"proportional sentence that corresponds the charges"
The comrade was led again to prison with his fists raised and in the next
days he is expected to be led to Domokos prison from the prisons of
Koridallos where he was kept temporarily for the trial.
THE PASSION FOR FREEDOM IS STRONGER THAN THEIR PRISONS
