Update on Alexis murderers case. 30/6/10
he murderers of Alexis Grigoropoulos are to be released
The two members of special police forces, Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vasilis Saraliotis, who murdered 15-year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos on December 6th, 2008, are to be released from prison on bail within the next few days. This, because the maximum pre-trial detention (18 in months in Greece) expires on June 6th. It is speculated that their bail condition will be not to leave the small Greek town of Amfissa, where their trial is ongoing.
In other cases in the past, court cases have been hurried in and trial procedures have been speeded up in order to prevent defendants from being released after the 18 months. But this is not “just” any case…
It seems the 17 year old friend of Alexis Grigoropoulos,who was next to him when he was murdered by the cop epaminontas korkoneas,has dissapeared from the face of the earth.
In the meantime,the claims of the cop about suspicious behaviour on Zoodohou Pigis street the night of the murder,were denyd by the guard that was on shift at Har.Trikoupi street and Navarinou,Athanasios Dellis.
While the court has ordered the police to bring the 17yearold in whatever it takes,so he can testify in court,he has dissapeared from his school and his house.
The court received a letter from the police station of Psihiko,that said that the youth has not been back to school since february when the trial began in Amfissa.
After the court order to bring him in, he dissapeared from his house aswell.
