    Background: This week-end sees the closure of all prison camps in Greece, and today (Thursday) the country's Army-backed Government released all political prisoners held without specific charge.

    Detainees from island prison camps sailed into Piraeus harbour early today, and there were some tearful and joyful reunions at the quayside. Those released include 234 communists, some Royalists arrested after the 1967 attempt to overthrow the regime and other political offenders. About 400 prisoners serving heavy terms for plotting against the government are still detained.
