From Tuesday 10/3/2015 I have been arrested and imprisoned in Korydallos prison.
My new arrest is because of the “civil war between anarchists” in Thessaloniki, which is the innner-movement conflicts that took place in the city in 2012. Days before the beginning of the trial I made my intention on the adjournment clear since, on the one hand, I already have another trial in progress about the “Phoenix” Project, in Korydallos prison and,on the other hand, my lawyer Fragkiskos Ragkousis was having, in the meantime, important trials in progress and couldn’t attend (mine). So, we asked for an adjournment from the headquarters of the court. What happened was, on the one hand, the headquarters to regularly go on with the procedure and, on the other hand, the accused ones to validate the trial through their presence. That is to say that the trial was regularly carried on with undercover cops and judges mentioning me all the time with no counterargument. So, this was when I published an open letter in which I clear things up and illustrate that anyone of my co-defendants who sanctions the trial through his presence, hands me over to the appetites of the counter-terrorism agency and the judges.

Oggi, Giovedi 26 febbraio, il processo relativo ai conflitti di movimento interni del 2012 a Salonicco è proseguito dopo una pausa.
Da parte mia, è fin troppo chiaro già dal primo momento, il fatto che il processo non può avere luogo in questo periodo, perché il mio avvocato Fragiskos Ragousis ha qualche impedimento ed io sto già affrontando il processo relativo al progetto “Phoenix”, che si svolge ad Atene.
Oggi, il giudice ha deciso di avviare il processo anche senza la presenza di un avvocato. Va notato che in questo processo sono accusato di reati riguardanti esplosioni, possesso e uso di esplosivi, ecc
Così, comprensibilmente, un tale processo non può proseguire se il principale imputato ha obiezioni forti.

Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis were released from prison on January 12, 2015 owning to the expiry of the maximum 18-month period of pretrial detention.
The two anarchists were arrested on July 11, 2013 in Thessaloniki and then sent to pretrial detention in Koridallos prison, in Athens, on terrorism charges. Tsavdaridis has assumed responsibility for sending a parcel bomb (as FAI-IRF cell under the name Commando Mauricio Morales) to Dimitris Chorianopoulos, ex-commander of the anti-terrorist police unit, while Mandylas (participant in Nadir, ex-squat in Thessaloniki) has denied all charges against him. As of June 4, 2014 both comrades stand trial in the special courtroom of Koridallos women’s prison, alongside the ten imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. Andreas Tsavdaridis and Spyros Mandylas are accused of alleged participation in the CCF, attempted homicide of that ex-commander of the anti-terrorist force, and attempted explosion and possession of explosives (in connection to the same incendiary package mailing, action claimed in Greece as part of the “Phoenix Project”).
