According to the ballistics report at the Police’s crime lab, the two weapons used in the attack against governing party New Democracy’s HQ in the early hours of Monday, a Kalashnikov assault rifle and a handgun, appear to be “clean” and have not been used in other criminal activity.
Based upon this information, the anti-terrorist unit’s leadership rule out the possibility that the assailants were related to the violent assault on the Ag. Paraskevi Police Department in 2009. Police officials however are considering that a new cell of the SPF terrorist group, the return of “Sect of Revolutionaries” or wanted criminal Nikos Maziotis, all of whom have been known to use Kalashnikov assault rifles. The same sources indicate that there is a chance that smaller groups, which dealt in arson attacks, have upgraded their arsenal.
