N17 head suggests government knew of Xeros's escape plans

"Why was he given a free pass to go wherever he wanted, to the head guard's office, to the Cells, the most important convicts?" Giotopoulos said, referring to reports showing that 55-year-old Xeros had paid frequent visits in Korydallos Prison to convicted members of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire terrorist group in the period leading up to his escape.

"Who gave the order?" Giotopoulos continues. "Not, of course, the director or some guard. They don't have that kind of authority nor would they take on such a responsibility.

"The order came from above. From the counter-terrorism unit, from the National Intelligence Service (EYP) and therefore from the government that oversees it," Giotopoulos said.

Giotopoulos suggests that while other convicted terrorist were kept under close surveillance by counter-terrorism officers while of furlough, Xeros "had no one" keeping an eye on him, saying that authorities, including the CIA, "did nothing" to prevent his escape.

David Beckham has joined Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst for an Only Fools And Horses Sport Relief sketch that reunites Del Boy and Rodney for the first time in over a decade.

As part of BBC One's Sport Relief coverage on 21 March, the sketch will see Beckham head to Peckham to join the duo in a greasy spoon cafe.

Sir David and Lyndhurst last played the wheeler-dealing Trotter brothers in a Christmas special in 2003.

Sport Relief runs between 21-23 March.

Editor's Choice: JustLuxe Lists Their Dream Destinations for 2014

Curious of where the other JustLuxe editors would travel to if they had the chance this year, I queried each to find out where their dream 2014 travel destinations would be. These are their picks and mine, and here's to hoping we make some of these a reality soon.

Christy Stewart, Managing Editor
Kefalonia, Greece

"A vacation, what’s that? While I’ve definitely racked up my fair share of air miles this past year, the thought of a real vacation sure does sound fabulous right about now. But where to? I think I could go for two weeks of uninterrupted and unplugged sun worshiping on the white sand of Myrtos Beach in Kefalonia, Greece."

The hotel JustLuxe are plugging is on Ithaka. Not that convenient for lazing on the white sand beach of Myrtos.

An activist in Belarus registered his parrot as a candidate in a local council election, it appears.

The commission accepted the document, and processed an application to set up an associated campaign group.

If it was some might say it came straight from the horse's mouth. But that would be very unkind.
