ATHENS – US Ambassador  David Pearce has reiterated demands that notorious November 17 terrorist Savvas Xiros, whose victims included Americans, not be released from prison.

The coalition led by the Radical Left SYRIZA government of Prime Minister Alex Tsipras wants to release criminals who have disabilities. Xiros was blinded when a bomb he was building to kill more people blew up in his face and SYRIZA said it wants him out for “humanitarian” reasons.

“[Xiros] should not set foot out of prison before his sentences are served,” Pearce tweeted in response to an excerpt from a TV interview of Tsipras on the issue which was posted by Financial Times journalist Peter Spiegel.

Xiros was convicted, among other crimes, of murdering with a car bomb in 1988 Captain William Nordeen, the US Defense and Naval Attaché to Greece, and killing US Air Force sergeant Ronald Stewart three years later.

Xiros, who is serving five life sentences, has a number of illnesses that include multiple sclerosis. SYRIZA has been accused of having anarchist elements and terrorist sympathizers who want to empty the jails of hardened criminals and have no laws.
