The Greek police are searching for a 37-year-old Bulgarian who was involved in the robberies of Egio and Dafnes post offices in the Peloponnese, which were committed in December 2014. A 29-year-old Albanian was apprehended for participation in them in Attica in January 2015. It is believed that he belongs to a criminal organization acting on the instructions of Panagiotis Vlastos. It placed explosives in the house of Vlastos’ cousin, the house of the court chairman who convicted him of kidnapping businessman Panagopoulos, in the house of a court employee who investigated the attempted escape by helicopter and in the houses of former directorate head at the Ministry of Defence Yiannis Sbokos’ family members.

The security services of Patras have identified the Bulgarian but his whereabouts are unknown.

The criminals had stolen a total of 8,000 euro in both robberies. They had abandoned on the Tripoli-Korinthos highway near Nestani the car they had previously stolen from Attica. The Bulgarian was involved in the two robberies and in addition he had supplied the members of the organization with phone cards belonging to foreigners.

The prosecutor’s office in Patras has initiated legal proceedings against him, and the other three perpetrators who have not yet been identified, for creating, and participating in, an organized criminal group, complicity in robbery, illegal possession, and use of, weapons, and theft.
