Greece: Imprisonment of conscientious objectors: Christos Kouknakos, Theodosis Strimenopoulos
On 31 May 1995, conscientious objectors Christos Kouknakos and Theodosis Strimenopoulos were sentenced by the Military Court to two years' imprisonment for refusing to perform military service. The two men are currently serving their sentences in Sindos Military Prison. As Jehovah's Witnesses they are opposed to performing any kind of military service, and in Greece there is no alternative civilian service. Amnesty International considers these men and all other imprisoned conscientious objectors in Greece to be prisoners of conscience and is calling for their immediate and unconditional release.
