Regarding this development, Mr. Lytras stated to Tunnel:
“The trial was postponed because in the same trial, I had another court in Athens that was in progress. My creditors claim they have nothing to do with the crime they are assigned to, and they think everything will be clarified in the trial at second instance.”
A number of witnesses were found to court . Among them are the close friend of the victim, Spyros Kalamboukas. Angeliki Nikolouli will also testify for the case. Her research unfolded the confusing thread of this affair and brought to light the modern “Medea”.
