The Hunger Striker Dimitris Koufodinas Victorious – His Third Leave Permit Was Apporoved

Following a marathon session of more than eight hours, the Prison Council of Korydallos decided unanimously (with the agreement of the Prosecutor) to grant Dimitris Koufodinas his third leave license.
Dimitris Koufodinas has announced that he is ending the hunger strike, which had reached the 16th day and further damaged his already fragile health. Later there will be a hunger strike statement.

In the next few days, we will say a lot more about this case, about the role of the SYRIZA-ANEL government and bourgeois justice. We are currently heartened by the fact that Dimitris Koufodinas won the rights that were deprived of him by using his own body as a ‘weapon’.
