Official reports say that the illicit ship Saint George was sneaking 27 explosive boxes

Abstract

Officially confirmed, the Saint George ship from Greece, which was intercepted on the 26 of January by police and military forces, in the coast of Chlorakas, was illegaly importing 27 explosive boxes and other military equipment. The crew was arrested and also some residents of Chlorakas who helped unloading the shipment. Among the arrested is Sokrates Loizides, former Secretary-General of PEK who was deported form Cyprus in 1950. Residents of Chlorakas report that this may be the work of a secret Greek organisation called "Hiton" which has acolytes in Cyprus.
