The trial of suspects charged with participation in the ultra-leftist urban terror gang “conspiracy of cells of fire” will begin on Jan. 17, 2011, it was announced on Thursday.

A total of 13 defendants face numerous felony charges linked to three bomb attacks, specifically ones targeting the offices of current labour minister Louka Katseli (before she assumed the government post), former interior minister Panagiotis Hinofotis and the Macedonia-Thrace ministry offices.

The place of the court trial will be decided shortly.
