The 29-year-old man charged with sending a letter bomb to ex-prime minister Lucas Papademos, former German finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, and the IMF has been remanded in custody on a second charge as well, that of illegal weapons possession.
The accused was questioned by an investigating magistrate at Athens’ Evelpidon courthouse, regarding the weapons cache found in his possession at the time of his arrest.
Fragiskos Ragousis, the man’s attorney, said that the new charges in fact pertain to the same case and that his client will file an appeal.
Ragousis said his client denies the charges and maintains that he was transporting the weapons to unload them, as he wanted to dissociate himself from that scene.
The accused has also denied all charges that he was behind the letter bombings.
