Press Release

The Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Athens expresses its strong disapproval and deep regret regarding the event held by the School of Economic and Political Sciences at the Athens Law School on 27 June 2014, to introduce the book written by a convicted 17 November terrorist, Dimitris Koufontinas, who was given the opportunity to contribute by phone from prison.

It is disappointing that the event was organised at a school of law, which, instead of presenting itself as a platform for convicted terrorists, should focus on how to better educate students that reject all forms of terrorism.


This event has nothing to do with academic freedom and is nothing more than the twisted glorification of terrorist activities. The event was an effort, for a convicted murderer, aiming at the promotion of a book praising a terrorist organization which, among other crimes, murdered and attacked members of the Turkish Embassy in the past. It is saddening to see that the members of this organization have not been corrected and can even find a platform in universities, continuing to spread their poison to young minds.
