Hunger strike officially ended

The remaining comrades from the DAK (Network of imprisoned fighters) have ended their hunger strike, judging that most of their significant demands have been met. Via contrainfo-

“– The legal framework that determines the operation of type C prisons was repealed. (However, article 187 regarding criminal organisations and article 187A regarding terrorist organisations still stand.)

– The aggravating feature relating to acts committed with concealed/altered physical characteristics was abolished for cases of arrests in demonstrations. However, the anti-hoodie law still applies to cases of (armed) robberies. According to the hunger strike termination statement of the participants in DAK, the minimum sentence for robbery with concealed/altered physical characteristics was dropped from 10 to 5 years, leaving the matter to the discretion of the judge.

“– It was determined that an independent expert witness may be present from the early stage of collection of genetic material/samples. However, the prosecutorial provision of forcible taking of DNA samples still stands.

– It was determined that inmates sentenced to life imprisonment who have served 10 years in prison, and their degree of disability exceeds an 80%, may be granted release to serve the remainder of their sentence under house arrest (with an electronic bracelet). So, the convicted 17N member Savvas Xiros may be granted the possibility to be placed under house arrest, as his degree of disability has reached a 98%.”
