from Greek daily Kathimerini
'Four main suspects and seven alleged accomplices are to stand trial in connection to the abduction of businessman Giorgos Mylonas in Thessaloniki in June 2008, according to a ruling by a council of appeals court judges in the northern city. One of the main suspects is Vassilis Palaiocostas, the fugitive who has been on the run since he escaped from Korydallos Prison in February. The three men accused of helping Palaiocostas carry out the Mylonas abduction are in custody. The accused are to face seven felony charges and 17 misdemeanor charges. Mylonas was held for 15 days by his kidnappers, who released him when a ransom of almost 11 million euros was paid.'
