Media outlets (tovima.gr & greekreporter.com) reported today that Greek police officers arrested five members of the “Team Epsilon” (Greek: Ομάδα Έψιλον) far-right group for two low-power bomb attacks against the Bank of Greece in Kalamata and the statue of Byzantine Emperor Constantine Palaiologos in Mystras, both in the region of Peloponnese. The authorities also uncovered the group’s hideout, which was full of explosives, in Kalamata. According to the police, the “Team Epsilon” was preparing for a large-scale quadruple attack against central buildings in Kalamata.
Athensvoice.gr reported that the members of “Team Epsilon” have published on their website violent diatribes against the Greek political system, “the Jews” and “the Zion-Nazis” (they suggest in their texts that even Nazism is a creation of Zionism), but also against the Orthodox Church and “the Free Masons”, while they glorify the “purity” and the “independence” of the Greek nation.
