The Tale of Two Tomorrows

CURRENT MOON

Vassilis Palaiokostas escaped by helicopter twice from the Greek high-security Korydallos prison while serving a 25-year sentence for kidnapping and robbery. He is believed to have been the mastermind of the kidnapping of Giorgos Mylonas, a Greek industrialist, as the ransom paid was traced back to him. In 2000 he was convicted for the 1995 kidnapping of Alexander Haitoglou, the CEO of Haitoglou Bros, a food company in Northern Greece and sentenced to 25 years in prison. His brother, Nikos Palaiokostas, is in prison for 16 bank robberies. The government of Greece faced intense criticism after his second escape from the same facility, and the government responded by firing three justice ministry officials and arresting three prison guards. What makes him famous in his hometown is the fact that it is said that he has given most of the stolen money to poor families, making him a local “Robin of the Poor”, reminiscent of the famous tale of Robin Hood.
