Mitsotakis outraged by furlough granted to convicted 17N terrorist Koufodinas

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Thursday expressed outrage at a decision to grant a two-day furlough to convicted ‘November 17’ terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas, who is serving 11 life sentences in Korydallos Prison as one of the leaders of the notorious terror group.

Mitsotakis sternly attacked the goverment, accusing it of tolerating lawlessness.

“I speak as a shocked citizen that sees the greatest terrorist, an unrepentant assassin, ‘the gun of 17N terror group’ getting out of prison,” he said in parliament.

The decision had come at the worst possible time, when lawlessness and violence were on the rise, he added.

There should be zero tolerance for the enemies of democracy. We must shout a resounding “no more” said Mitsotakis.
