A Piraeus court on Monday adjourned for June 6 to consider arequest for a medical furlough submitted by Savvas Xiros, one of the convicted “17 November” ultra-leftist urban terrorists. The request was based on health problems that allegedly call for medical examinations at Thessaloniki’s AHEPA Hospital.
The court based its decision on the absence of a medical opinion on Xiros’ health problem, which was signed by Korydallos Prison's medical staff.

Savvas Xiros, 49 -- one of three Xiros brothers serving a prison sentence in the N17 case -- suffered extensive injuries after a bomb he was planting exploded in his hands in June 2002.
