Late in the afternoon, shortly before Tunnel broadcast, the judicial developments in the case of Graikos became known. The Prosecutor of Appeal asks for the prosecution of the murder of the unfortunate breeder and declares that the Prosecutor’s decision to send the case to the Archives is incorrect.
The persistent and methodical investigation of the Tunnel in the last two years is justified …
Two days before these serious developments, Angeliki was found in Thessaloniki, where Dimitris Graikos disappeared.
She decoded the route followed by the businessman the fateful afternoon. With her in the same car, was the witness who saw him last …
The journalist entered the slaughterhouses and specific places…
After months of silence, his wife, who initially claimed her husband was alive, changed and spoke to the reporter about everything…
Graiko’s wife: I want to light a candle for his memory …
She told the reporter that her life and her children’s life had changed dramatically after his disappearance .
“Beyond the everyday problems we face at work, the biggest that is torturing us is that we want to know what has happened …”
In a related question by Angeliki Nikolouli why they have no contact with the thorough investigation in this extraordinary affair, she replied:
“The fact that I and my children do not appear does not mean we do not hurt”.
She agreed with the reporter that this disappearance is a mystery.
“He disappeared from the face of the earth … I wonder how this happened … We also followed the route that he had followed according to the security cameras that recorded it. No one saw something . In the slaughterhouses we were told that at the meal that followed after the slaughter of the animals that day, there were quite a few people. Most of them Dimitris stayed with the merchant with whom he had the financial transaction and the lady who was running the canteen. After looking at some invoices, the merchant left first and then my husband followed “.
In the conversation with the reporter, he suggested that the animals that were slaughtered were of greater value and that her husband did not receive the money that was said …
As she told the reporter, the important thing for her and her children is to learn the truth.
“What we really want is to know what happened to Dimitris, the father of my children, my husband … If some have been blamed for his death, they must pay … Two years have passed and all I did was light a candle in the church. I did not know what else to do … We have to learn … “she said.
“He had no reason to suddenly change his way and come home …”
The wife of Dimitris Graikos spoke to Angeliki Nikolouli, referring to the tension that existed between them after she announced that she wanted a divorce. Then, as she claimed, they decided try again and for this reason they had family holidays with their children in a very pleasant atmosphere.
“We went through a crisis after twenty-five years of marriage. After that we were every day together. No tension existed between us before he was lost, “he said.
He said that on the day of the disappearance he was at the house until noon and left to transport her uncle to a special medical center in Thessaloniki. Then she returned, did not find him and the next morning she declared his disappearance to the police.
“It was the first time he did not retyrn, and that was a cause of concern to me. In the past, he never did something like that, “she answered to Angeliki’s relevant question why she rushed to declare the disappearance.
In a journalist’s question whether she has thought about what could have happened on that route, she replied:
“I’ve thought of it too many times. I have made this route and have seen that there are many dirt roads that he could follow. Perhaps he had an appointment, wanted to go somewhere else to leave the meat he had taken from the slaughterhouses? I do not know…”.
When the reporter referred to the case of returning for some reason at the house choosing a completely different route than he used to, she replied:
“There was no reason to do so. He had never followed another route in the past. I thought his loss was due to something unexpected that has nothing to do with his family or his professional environment. ”
“The fact that the car was not found shows that something was organized,” Angeliki Nikolouli told her.
“You’re right, I was thinking the same. If they stopped him in order to steal his money Dimitris would resist, but would take the money and leave him there … Something would be found… ”
Graiko’s wife: We need a closure
The wife of the missing businessman also referred to her relationship with a fortune teller who Tunnel had found and had presented her testimony.
“Aggeliki despair sometimes leads you to do extreme things. I do not find it bad to address to some people in order to learn something that would reassure me. Two years have passed… “, she said.
She stressed that she was annoyed by the comments of that particular witness, as she said, that she had been treated very well in the past. She said that all this time after her husband’s loss, there were quite a few people who disappointed her with their behavior.
“Foreign people stood beside me, while from others, I received only pain. The fact that I wanted to divorce with Dimitris he still is the father of my children. And the one who is experiencing the routine of these children is me. The vicious comments that are being heard have definitely influenced them, “she said.
In the conversation, the reporter referred to the fact that there was no reaction on her part to further investigation after the magistrate sent the case to the Archives.
“Not getting out on the channels with announcements does not mean we did not act through our lawyer to really know what happened.”
Her initial claims were that her husband lives. Now she agreed with the reporter when she told her that the survey showed that Graikos not only did not leave voluntarily, but also took care of his financial pending before disappearing. She even added that she had contacts with engineers as well, as he planned to make changes to their country house.
“Inside me I want to believe and I want to hear that for his own reasons, maybe he’s gone. But as time passes, I start worrying. If he was alive he would reasonably learn about the extent that this matter has taken, for the anxiety of his own people, he would even make a phone and end it, “she said.
In a related question by Angeliki Nikolouli about the fame that was deliberately spread that Graikos had chosen a younger companion to have a child with her and living abroad, she replied:
“I know him, I do not think that Dimitris did something like that …”
The wife of the missing entrepreneur stressed that the common goal of herself, her children, and his siblings, is to get a response.
She thanked the reporter publicly.
“I want to thank you Angeliki for continuing the research. I could not do anything by myself, nor to hire a detective, nor to appear at the television. We talked several times on the phone and I have watched your shows. What I wish is to put an end, no matter what it is … “.
“They spread lies for their own benefit …”
Tunnel found another key witness. Specific circles spread that his daughter is associated with Graikos, they have a child and live abroad!
He said he knew the missing person as they had worked in the past. His reaction was intense when the reporter informed him of the rumors about his daughter.
“What are you saying, are you serious? They are saying things about me daughter ? Is this possible; I actually have two daughters. One actually lived abroad and specifically in England where she was married. For years she has lived with her husband in Greece. They have kids, do you understand what I’m telling you? My other daughter, who is also married and has children, has never left Greece. We are talking about women over 45 year old. It would be good for those who spread this rumor, not to write fantastic scenarios for their own benefit. Do whatever you can. Do not let the case because Dimitris was a good person, “he emphasized.
On the path of the mystery with the last witness who saw Graikos
Angeliki Nikolouli was found in the place where the thriller of Dimitris Graikos started with the merchant who the missing person had the financial transaction the fateful afternoon and followed the path of mystery.
The witness reported that after settling their bills and giving him seventeen thousand euro cash, they entered their cars to leave.
“I left first. In my rural car there is no mirror on the windshield and I did not see him at all if he was behind me. The camera seems to have been going fast but this is not really the case, “the witness said.
Together they were also found at the intersection at issue, where the camera recorded the car of Graikos to follow his own.
The witness told Angeliki Nikolouli that he first went from the store he kept in Anatoliko and then to his unit. There he met with a partner and left after about an hour.
Once again he ruled out what he heard that Graikos was following him because he did not agreed with the deal. He stressed that there are documentary evidence and checks proving the money he gave him.
“If he followed me, he would come from my shop … Whoever spread that there was a fight between us for money and has some evidence, let him go and say it to the police. Dimitris may have chosen another route, as this direction leads to different roads, “he said.
Together with the reporter they followed the route leading to Sindo. Graikos could choose it if he decided for some reason to go to his wife’s house.
“I learned about the disappearance the next morning when my nephew took me to the phone and told me that Dimitris had not appeared,” the witness said.
“His disappearance is a mystery. With the car he was driving could not go away. What sounds like he’s gone abroad is a jerk. We had a good professional relationship. Together we did ten massacres. If he was not paid, why should he work with me again? “he emphasized.
“I wish that we will find him,” he concluded.
“They said we” evaporated “Graikos here …”
Angeliki Nikolouli was found at Halarastra slaughterhouse and spoke with employees at the premises.
She entered the area that was cleaned at that time after the slaughter of animals that had preceded it.
The camera recorded the center of concentration of the crumbles, the cutting and separation points. With the employee who loaded the meat on a fateful afternoon at Graiko’s farm car, she walked where the incinerator. Many things were heard about this facility.
After its bucket is gradually filled with waste two or three times a week, the combustion is regulated electronically.
The reporter also met with the owner of the slaughterhouses.
“I ‘ve heard too much, that we had vanished him, that we had” vanquished “him. The man came out of here and was lost afterwards. The camera shows him leaving. We had a case of robbery here, but six months after the disappearance of Graikos and during the night, not at working hours. This has never happened. What has been heard about the Romanian slaughterhouse workers it is not true. They left later than the disappearance of Graikos and one of them returned to the area, “he said.
Regarding the security guard who saw Graikos turning on the interior light of the car and look something, he said:
“He should not be talking on the cell phone. He was doing something, but I cannot know exactly what. I wish he is alive, but everything seems this not the case, “he concluded.
Alarm in the night for a burnt car
A testimony that arrived at the show spoke of a burnt rural car in an inaccessible area of Palaiokastro. The Authorities were immediately notified, while the witness in the night with the head of the OFKATH rushed to the place. As it was found in the field investigation, police officers had already searched this point, with no effect.
Nikos Dialynas for the judicial developments
In the Tunnel’s studio, was found the legal representative of the brother of the missing man, Nikos Dialynas. He said about the important judicial developments:
“We gave with his brother Greco a great fight against many situations and scenarios. From today we will officially say that Graikos was murdered. Deputy Prosecutor Vasilis Floridis, in his honor in a multi-layered order, gives an order to prosecute manslaughter intentionally. It is unfortunate that another prosecutor in just two pages, had believed that the Graikos lives and reigns, and indeed is in an adjacent country, sending the case to the Archives!
Now after our actions, an honest and experienced magistrate makes a full analysis of the facts, identifies contradictions and “photographs” the persons involved.
He states that it really goes beyond the extreme limits of reasoning to accept that a family-run entrepreneur chose to leave voluntarily. He points out that the case of disappearing from the face of the earth it is valid only if there was human energy. ”
The lawyer and criminologist Panayiotis Papaioannou, referring to developments, stressed the following:
“It is a toppling overturn which shows that the material of a case file that for eight months was in police missing persons department, with the insistence of the family left there, but fell into the ditch of the wrong two-pages crisis. Now we can say that the correct valuation of the case has been “locked” and after this evolution will be brought to the Investigator. A tragic mistake has been corrected and one has proven it scientifically. ”
Former police director Thanasis Katerinopoulos who was found in the studio of the show said:
“No one leaves his business , his children and leaves without saying anything. The prosecutor who ordered the persecution for homicide saw something, admitted evidence, did not stay in the clues, but went further. I believe that an experienced investigator will be helped since there is now a family-wide consensus. “
