November 17 assassin Koufodinas submits new request for furlough

Convicted November 17 terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas has submitted a new request for a short-term leave at the prison council of Korydallos, two months after receiving his first 24-hour furlough since he was jailed in 2003.

He will have to appear before the prison council again to explain his reasons for the leave. Back in November, he told officers he wanted to reunite with his family and restore his bee-keeping unit.

Koufodinas is serving 11 life terms for his role in the terrorist group that killed businessmen, policemen and diplomats for decades until they were arrested in 2002.
