    [04] Latest terrorist suspect confesses to N17 involvement

    29/07/2002 14:36:37

    The latest in a bevy of arrested suspects linked with the notorious ?November 17? urban terrorist group confessed on Sunday to taking part in several attacks carried out by the group, before requesting and receiving a 48-hour stay in order to provide testimony to a special appellate-level magistrate.

    Patroklos Tselentis, who allegedly operated under the aliases of "Alekos" or "Tenias", told appeals court magistrate Leonidas Zervobeakos that he had taken part in the assassination of a local industrialist, Dimitris Angelopoulos, an Athens newspaper publisher, Nicos Momferatos and US military attache William Nordeen, among others.

    According to the same sources, Savvas Xiros, whose arrest exactly one month ago provided authorities with a veritable ?Rosetta Stone? breakthrough in tracking down the elusive terrorist group, also completed his bedside testimony before a local prosecutor. An indictment is expected on Monday against Xiros, the sometime church mural painter that is still recovering from a botched bombing attempt that landed him in custody.
