    Prison break repeat shocks Greece



    Two of Greece's most wanted men have staged a daring helicopter escape from Athens' highest-security prison - for the second time in three years.

    Serial armed robber and kidnapper Vassilis Paleokostas and his Albanian sidekick Alket Rizai were days away from trial for their 2006 escape.

    They fled Korydallos prison after a helicopter landed on the jail's roof and threw them a rope ladder.

    The aircraft was reportedly later found abandoned by a main highway.

    The road leads towards Greece's central mountain range, an area where Paleokostas, 42, was able to hide with impunity during previous years, says the BBC's Malcolm Brabant, in Athens.

    Our correspondent says the breakout is a damning indictment of Greece's prison system.

    Three years ago both men managed to escape when a hijacked helicopter landed in Korydallos' central yard at exercise time.

    On that occasion, the guards failed to react, because they thought it was a visit by prison inspectors.

    The architect of that escape, Paleokostas' brother Nikos, has since been captured and jailed, and is now likely to face increased security.

    I saw this earlier and I still can't figure out how they were able to "abandon the aircraft by a highway".

    How much of a headstart did they get that they could set down the helicopter and bail?

    My question is, how do you not HEAR a helicopter land on the jail's roof?

    Maybe a better question would be, how much ouzo were the guards drinking to not hear the helicopter?

    hahahah!!! i mean..it's their HIGHEST security prison and Greece has had all kinds of violent criminals.

    I'm just thinking it was done quickly. And what are the guards going to do? if they don't get a shot at the escapees their not going to shoot at the helicopter. More details will unfold. This article was written poorly. So there were TWO helicopter escapes.. one from the courtyard and one from the roof. where were they in order to access the the rope ladder?

    Yeah I know, I'm just saying maybe one of those bans are finally justified. I've never trusted BBC news anyways.
