The verdict 1333/2018 of Greece’s Supreme Court has put an end to the prosecution’s attempt to appeal an appellate court ruling which found anarchist activist and writer Tasos Theofilou not guilty.
Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
It is important to note once again that Tasos was found not guilty in all counts when his criminal case was tried in the Athens Court of Appeals. Nevertheless, last April the Supreme Court deputy prosecutor Ioannis Aggelis appealed against the ruling.
Kostas Papadakis, Tasos’ lawyer, stated: “There are judges who do not serve the interests of the counter terrorism. When a movement fights to instill the spirit of justice in the justice system, it could only succeed. This is a milestone decision since this is the first time a case brought to court by counter terrorism ends in a not guilty verdict. It was a slap against the system, especially after the not guilty verdict in the case of Irianna as well. There is the pressing issue of an inquiry that must be ordered by the government to determine who is responsible. It is unacceptable that all these people behind these machinations remain in their position and keep targeting the leftist and anti-authoritarian milieu while they never seem to face any consequences for their actions. This decision deconstructs the conclusive overuse of DNA evidence as an evidential super-weapon against a generation of usual suspects that the counter terrorism was going to target in the next decade.
