Prisoner escaped from prison with helicopter, again

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Greece’s most notorious prisoner escaped from an Athens jail yesterday in a Hollywood-style helicopter getaway – for a second time. Vassilis Palaiokostas, 44, had escaped from the maximum security prison in 2006 in an operation involving helicopters and fast cars. He was arrested again last summer for allegedly organising the kidnap of an industrialist and was awaiting trial.
