"My initiative to write and publicise my position and clarify the reasons why I am not going to appear in court came after reading and seeing the publications and following the development of both them and the development of the trial.
After taking a look at the media publications and what Mr Kougias said, I believe I'm obliged to take a position against him since he decided to do the same against me.
As for him not participating in the trial if I do not appear to testify, I state that with great happiness and impatience I wait for his non-participation and also his ridiculous statements, that only make me laugh.
As for the second part where he refers to my involvement in far left organizations, cooperation with criminals and other ridiculous things like that, i would like to say that they are just conspiracy theories of an imaginative lawyer who likes to create impressions and tries every way possible to cling on to timelines, regardless of whether they are positive or negative for him.
Nothing more than a mythomaniac "Karagiozakos" who has knowledge of the criminal code and likes to suck as much disclosure as possible, playing either the role of a victim (beaten, fainting etc.) or that of a consequential professional.
As for the announcement from the police that they are not monitoring my every move, all I have to say is that saying that they are not following me around everywhere is like saying that Korkoneas did not shoot Alexis.
Id like also to clarify here that besides the publications, I had no intention to appear in court anyway because I'm not at all interested in the outcome of this trial. I consider it my political choice to not appear when the institution tells me to, but to express my point of view when and how I choose to.
So, I wish good luck to Mr Kougias and his client, and I challenge the Greek police to do their job, if they have the specific ability"
