Colonel Makarezos died on Monday and was buried Tuesday. Makarezos was a ringleader of the military coup that seized power on April 21, 1967. Makarezos was arrested after the fall of the dictatorship in 1974 and sentenced to death for treason — a sentence later commuted to life imprisonment. He was released in 1990 on the grounds of poor health and he lived in Athens in recent years. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img
