Eight suspicious parcels found in post office, two addressed to Djsselbloem and Moscovici

Eight more suspicious parcels, believed to contain explosives, were found and seized at the assorting center of the Greek Post Service (ELTA) in Kryoneri in northern Attica.  The packages indicate as recipients officials in various European countries. First two names of recipients leaked to the press are the names of Eurogroup head, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, and EU Commissioner for Monetary Affairs, Pierre Moscovici.

Cited as ‘senders’ are the names of academics, economists, managers of multinational companies an academics who somehow played an influential role in Greek politics.

The parcels are believed to be similar with the one sent to German Finance Ministry in Berlin and the offices of the International Monetary Fund in Paris last week. Both parcels of last week, are said to have contained explosive powder used for fireworks.

Greek anarchist terror organization “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” claimed responsibility for the explosives parcel to German finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble. No organization claimed responsibility for the parcel that exploded in the IMF in Paris injuring an employee.

For the two parcels, the perpetrators cited as ‘senders’ the names of two New Democracy officials, one of them being the vice president of the conservative and Greece’s major opposition party.

The eight suspicious parcels were reportedly found before they left the assorting center for the Athens Airport and from there to their destination.

The Anti-terror police is investigating the case.

The two parcels of last week set authorities on alert, controls in post offices in Athens and at the assorting center have been intensified.

In 2010, the anarchist organization sent a parcel destined for Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. The parcel exploded while being examined by Italian authorities after a Greek police warning. Another parcel was retrieved from the outer office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. No one was injured.

Several members of the organization are in prison.

The real sender/senders of the parcel bombs seem to target officials who are in connection with the bailout agreements.
