With a four-page letter sent to Athens daily “Eleftherotypia”, a nameless group has claimed responsibility for the letter bomb sent to the minister of public order, Michalis Chrisochoidis, killing 52-year old Giorgos Vasilakis, a high-rank policeman and close aide of the minister.
In its communique, which is treated as original, the unnamed group develops a leftist-”patriotic” analysis of the current crisis (the communique is accompanied by excerpts of greek national “hero”, Rigas Feraios). They also explain in detail the logistics of their attack – apparently this is how the letter bomb made it through the ministry’s security checks: the parcel included a letter supposedly written by Christos Karavelas, one of the main accused persons for the Siemens scandal, in which he explained that the parcel included important audio evidence on the Siemens case. As the ministry’s personnel did not know what format the audio evidence was in (it could have been magnetic tapes), they preffered not to put it through the x-ray machine.
There is no group name signing the letter; they state that the name will be revealed in a future attack.
