The wanted-by-the-police girlfriend of terrorist Nikos Maziotis has short blond hair now, has lost a lot of weight, and has nothing to do with the Paula Roupa of 2010 when she was initially detained. The photos released by the authorities are taken by the security camera of a store in the Athens’ neighbourhood of Maroussi, close by the building on the street of "Ipsilandou" where the hideout of the terrorist, his girlfriend and their child was found. According to the police, Paula Roupa visited the abovementioned store four days before the spectacular arrest of Maziotis in the centre of Athens on 16th July.

The frames have been processed, presumably to conceal the exact location and the child whose image has been digitally erased. However, it is clearly seen how in one of the photos, Roupa is holding her four and a half year old child, and in the other how she was rumaging in her wallet, probably to pay.

Paula was holding toys and carrying a backpack. Her new look was complemented by sunglasses, but what made the most impression on the policemen was how weak Roupa looked – she seemed to have lost about 30 kilograms.

The investigators are really worried by the two empty firearm holsters found in the Maroussi hiding place. One of them was of the H & K UPS 9mm gun and was found with Maziotis on the day of his arrest. According to the police, the second empty holster belonged to the gun that Roupa had taken with her when leaving the hiding place. If this information is confirmed, it means that the woman is armed.

The antiterrorists carefully reviewed the tapes from all security cameras in the Maroussi neighborhood to find other places visited by Roupa. They are trying to gather more details about the places she had been to, especially on the day of her disappearance, to find the usual routes she made use of. Simultaneously, the authorities are not excluding the possibility of Roupa having disappeared with a silver coloured Hyundai Accent with registration number ΥΗΤ-2959. This is the car purchased by Nikos Maziotis with a fake ID in the name of Michalis Mihelakis.

The police actions for detecting the car are concentrated in Attica regions such as Patissia, Agios Nikolaos, Kipseli, Nea Chalcedon, Nea Ionia, Marathonas, Nea Makri and Grammatiko, as well as in the regions of Kiato and Akrata, and the Corinthia area.

Investigators have been checking very carefully the region of Agios Nikolaos because, according to some sources, Maziotis had been seen in the area as well as when taking off from the electric railway station there.

Meanwhile, Nikos Maziotis, the terrorist injured in detention, who of his own will had been moved from the "Evangelismos" hospital to the hospital of Korydallos prison, yesterday asked to be moved to an ordinary cell.

Panagiota Roupa was born in 1969 in Kalamata. She graduated in Mathematics and has been known among the anarchists for long time. She seems to have met Maziotis when she was 26, during the occupation of the Polytechnic University in November 1995. According to the office for combating terrorism, Paula was the person who wrote all the proclamations of the "Revolutionary Struggle" terrorist organisation.

Paula Roupa’s Sister is Complaining about Police Harassment

Christiana Roupa, sister of the wanted terrorist Paula Roupa, reported police harassment during the search of her home in Kalamata conducted ​​a few days ago by the authorities in an attempt to find new information. In a letter published on the Internet, Christiana Roupa stated that the police raided her apartment by breaking through her front door, although she didn’t deny them access.

Paula Roupa’s sister is talking about "violation of human dignity" both of hers and of her sick mother. Christina Roupa says she will not tolerate such acts of fascist behavior and will take appropriate action as provided by law.
