    Background: Eight alleged left-wing Greek 'Tupamaros' guerrillas denied plotting to kidnap the son of the late U.S. President John Kennedy when they appeared before a court martial in the country's capital, Athens, on thursday (August 3). Among other charges they face -- to which the group's leader pleaded guilty -- are plotting a series of robberies and other kidnapping to raise money for their activities, including the buying of arms and explosives and the setting up of a radio station. The other seven pleased not guilty to all charges.

    The group's leader, Christos Ramantanis, a 31-year-old building worker, said their organisation, aimed at creating a communist 'classless' society was in an embryo stage when security forces arrested members last May and June.
