Nikos was sentenced to 86 years’ imprisonment in absentia in the Revolutionary Struggle case. His sentence was merged into 50 years. However, the maximum prison term is 25 years (which are typically served either as a full sentence or by day wages in prisons, or after the completion of 3/5 of the prison term, when a prisoner can be granted conditional release under specific conditions).
Nikos was on the run for two years, was seriously wounded and arrested on July 16, 2014, after a shootout with cops in Monastiraki. He was then transferred to the tightly-guarded Evangelismos hospital, where he was hospitalised and has since been transfered to the 5th wing of the new type C maximum security prison in Domokos. Updated: 03/01/15. Prisoners in these special wings may have their mail intercepted and it may not reach the intended recipient.
