ATHENS – Anarchist Nikos Romanos, who a week ago gave up a hunger strike after the government relented to his demands to be granted leaves to attend college, has been been released from a hospital and returned to jail for now.

Romanos hadn’t eaten for 31 days and became a cause celebre among anarchists who had rallied behind him while the government tried to persuade him to give up his quest, offering to let him study in prison.

Romanos though wanted to get out of the high security Korydallos Prison to go to the campus of the Athens Technical College where he had been admitted although convicted of bank robbery and spitting defiance against the government and his jailers.

A week after ending a 31-day hunger strike, the anarchist and convicted bank robber Nikos Romanos was discharged from an Athens hospital and transferred back to Attica’s high-security Korydallos Prison.

Romanos ended his strike after an amendment was approved in Parliament allowing prisoners to attend classes while wearing a monitoring bracelet. His lawyer promised he wouldn’t try to escape.
