Fabio Dusco is detained in solitary confinement following his abduction from Korydallos prison by riot police. He begun a hunger-strike last week to protest his subsequent detention in two separate facilities and to demand his transfer back to Korydallos. So far, no reports regarding the status of his health have been published which is worrying considering the hunger strike has lasted 10 days. The following letter in solidarity is co-signed by political prisoners detained in the underground cells of Korydallos prison.
Since Monday the 15th of February prisoner Fabio Dusco began a hungerstrike against the special conditions of detention that have been imposed upon him by the police and the Ministry of Justice.
Specifically, Fabio, who faces charges for the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire plan to escape from prison, was initially taken to Korydallos prison. In the early morning hours of the following day, riot police made a sudden intrusion into his cell and took him to the Attica Removal Centre. After the first day of the trial he was incarcerated at the Attica General Police Directorate.
This demonstrates that special conditions of detention introduced with the emergence of Type C prisons not only have not been abolished, but still operate covertly.
At the same time, the judicial dictators continue with their monologue, since, apart from Fabio, who is detained in isolation and has already begun a hunger strike, Athena Tsakalou and Evi Statiri cannot attend the trial as a consequence of the fascist restrictive conditions of their release which are still not lifted. Athena is exiled on Salamina island and Evi is not allowed to move further than a 1 km radius away from her residence.
