Prison warden murder tied to crime underworld

first_imgPolice investigating the violent murder of the warden of maximum-security Domokos Prison in central Greece on Saturday are focusing on the criminal underworld, rather than domestic terrorist groups, Kathimerini understands, after ballistics tests showed one of the guns fired in the attack had been previously used during an attempted robbery on a bank in Aspropyrgos, northwest of Athens, in 2012. The guns were found not to have any connections to previous terrorist attacks.The 47-year-old father of two was gunned down while leaving his home near the town of Lamia on Saturday afternoon when a dark SUV pulled up beside him and unidentified assailants opened fire with Kalashnikov assault rifles and a 9 mm pistol. Police said he was shot over 20 times and dozens of bullet casings were found near his body.Police are investigating the victim’s background to determine whether he had had any serious run-ins with members of Greece’ criminal underworld. They are also planning to access his phone records for any further clues from conversations he may have had earlier in the day.Domokos Prison was recently renovated to house some of Greece’s most dangerous criminals.In a statement issued on Monday, the country’s prison guards sought to draw attention to the tough working conditions and risks that they face. “We are fed up of being beaten up, spat on, knifed, threatened, suffering bomb attacks and the well-known consequences of all this,” the statement said.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more
