ATHENS – Greek police on March 2 said they had apprehended Angeliki Spyropoulou, the 22-year-old woman alleged to have been the accomplice of November 17 terrorist Christodoulos Xiros while he was a fugitive.
Spyropoulou, who allegedly acted as a gobetween for the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group, was arrested on the island of Salamina, Kathimerini said. She was reportedly caught at the home of a relative of one of the organization’s members.
Police had been hunting for her for two months. She was caught on video surveillance trying to buy materials that could be used to build an explosive device that authorities said Xiros wanted to use to help Conspiracy members escape Korydallos Prison.
Her arrest followed that of three others over the weekend said linked to Xiros, including two men and a woman believed to be co-conspirators.
A 39-year-old man who was allegedly arrested is referred to in notes that were exchanged between Conspiracy members and Angeliki. Police sources told Kathimerini that the man may be linked to the Sect of Revolutionaries, which has claimed the murders of policeman Nektarios Savvas and journalist Sokratis Giolias.
A 36-year-old woman was also arrested. She is believed to have passed 5,000 euros in cash to Angeliki on behalf of the Conspiracy group.
