Since mid-November 2010, Tsakalos had been at large, as a warrant for his arrest was issued shortly after the arrest of his brother Gerasimos. On March 14, 2011, he and four other comrades were arrested in Volos. He is prosecuted for “Volos case” (alleged bank robbery, while being dressed up like cops, ongoing trial), for his involvement with explosives and guns, which were found on other people prosecuted for the same case (arrests in Pireus and Kallithea), for the 14 parcel bombs case (ongoing trial), for the case concerning 250 attacks by CCF between 2008 and 2011 (ongoing trial), for the text in solidarity with Anarchist Squat Nadir (second eviction in October 2011), written by CCF, for his personal text denying the cooperation with prosecuting authorities (instigating violence), for an attempted prison escape along with another three CCF’s members in December 2011 and for taking three prison guards hostage and for instigation concerning “Phoenix” project. He is also prosecuted for an attack at a bank in the centre of Athens, in 2007, as his DNA was found on the scene. He is also prosecuted by the Italian state after a law suit by Silvio Berlusconi, concerning the parcel bomb which was shipped to him and he is also under investigation concerning “Ardire” case, which was launched on June 2012 by the Italian prosecuting authorities.
