Almost one year after the tragedy, the father of the student Nikos Chatzipavlou and his legal representative, Yiannis Glykas, are asking for a review of the file which was filed by the competent prosecutor of Kos.
For this reason, on Monday, 8 October, they filed an application to the Prosecutor of Appeals in Rhodes to carry out an autopsy at the place where the unfortunate student was found dead by coroners who made the second necropsy on his corpse, assisted by expert engineers.
They also handed over to the Prosecutor a supplementary forensic expert’s report signed by the family’s technical advisers, cororners Tsantiris and Koutsaftis.
According to this, it is argued that after such a fall there is no fracture or spleen rupture and that there should be traces of blood in a straight line.
The student’s relatives believe that not all the facts of the case have been assessed and that there are many witnesses who have not yet been asked to testify.
Nikos Hadjipavlou, 21, went to Kalymnos to visit his family. At noon on Sunday, November 19, he left with his brother’s bicycle for a walk and disappeared.
At night he had not yet returned, his parents notified the police and signaled an alarm. The bike was located the same day in the rough area of Prophet Elias. After six days of research, Nikos was found dead in the Laga area, two hundred meters from the point where the bicycle was left.
