A 23-year-old man arrested on Wednesday in Kifissia with two outstanding arrest warrants against him for participation in the "Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire" urban terror group and in connection with a spate of parcelbombs in November was remanded in custody on Friday after being brought before an examining magistrate.

The detainee, Michalis Nikolopoulos refused to give testimony, saying that he does not acknowledge the procedure.

The two arrest warrants against Nikolopoulos are for participation in the "Cells of Fire" and for a spate of 14 parcel bombs sent to foreign embassies in Athens and foreign leaders in November.

After the two warrants are executed, the suspect will also be taken before a prosecutor to be charged for arms possession, given that police found a pistol and a handgrenade in his possession at the time of his arrest.
