Yesterday we reported that in a dramatic escalation against the lockbox of Europe’s cash, a package containing explosives was found at the German finance ministry. It was, however, unclear who had sent it. Today we have an answer: according to Reuters, the militant Greek group Conspiracy of Fire Cells has claimed responsibility for the parcel bomb that was mailed to German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, German police said on Thursday.

The parcel was mailed to Schaeuble from a post office branch in Athens but as discussed previously, was intercepted by the German finance ministry’s mail department. The group has previously claimed responsibility for a wave of parcel bombs sent to foreign embassies in Athens in 2010.

“We still have the rage. We sent the package to Germany’s finance minister as part of the second act of Nemesis Plan,” the group said in a statement on the internet. “Nothing is over, everything continues.” The statement did not specify what Nemesis Plan was. Police consider the claim as credible.

Needless to say, Schaeuble is perhaps the most unpopular person in Greece, more so than even Angela Merkel, perceived as the embodiment of all Greek suffering and the hardliner on austerity during the country’s long financial crisis.

The Conspiracy of Fire Cells, one in a long line of violent anti-establishment groups in Greece, initially specialized in arson attacks but turned to bombings in May 2009. In 2011, six of their members were sent to prison with sentences ranging from 11 to 37 years.

The group has become prominent since the economic crisis erupted in Greece and is accused by police of carrying out about 150 criminal acts since 2009.
