Manolis Soropidis, who confessed that he murdered the beautiful Dora Zeberis and then recalled, spoke to the reporter again through Domokos prison where he is detained …
He once again insisted that Dora was not “lost” by his own hands and that he is living as stigmatized. He said that since public opinion wants him to be the culprit, he will go to court and accept the sentence of life imprisonment.
About his allegations that he was wearing plaster in his hand, he said he took out the plaster and left the stained gauzes which he threw away with the girl’s stolen bag. Then rebuild the plaster because he was hurting !
Responding to the questions of the journalist, he fail into contradictions. While claiming he was alone in the cemetery, he refrained from clearing out if he stabbed Dora himself. He also said he threw his victim’s bag, the knife, his bloody blouse, and the bloody gauze in a garbage bin.
The testimony that came to “Tunnel” from the place of the wild crime, raised new questions.
A witness who was found in the cemetery on the day of the murder saw a moderate man moving to the point of the murder. He was constantly speaking on his cell phone, and behind his left leg was hanging a chain.
Developments have sparked a heated debate between the legal representatives of the accused and the victim’s relatives in the studio.
In a live connection trough Skype, the legal representative of Dora’s mother and siblings, Gianna Panagopoulou, said:
“It is challenging for someone who has confessed a crime to come now without giving any convincing answer to key questions. He says he has been stigmatized and is about to be punished. He states that he sympathizes Dora’s family but does not give them answers. Among other things, he must explained why his BMW car was seen before the crime passed several times from Dora’s house. “
At this point the defense counsel of Soropides, Vasilis Noulezas, said:
“It has nothing to do with monitoring. In the cemetery he was watching her for twenty days. There was a plan to make an armed robbery, but there was a murder plot behind. The accused is not required to prove to whom the orphan DNA found in the victim belongs. He will not apologize for the shortcomings in the survey. Is it possible that it has not been a crime representation? How do we go to trial on July 4, when the orphan DNA is not identified and when it has not been revealed who text Dora not to go to the cemetery? “
Regarding the plaster that Soropidis said he temporarily removed , he stressed that it was a splint that he had put in the hospital.
The lawyer of the father of the victim, Apostolos Lytras, said to “Tunnel”
“It is certain that the accused was at the scene of the crime. If there is another or other perpetrators or morticians, we are here to continue the investigation. So far there we have an accused who is provocative and does not help the family. “
“I saw a man with a chain …”
A new testimony came to light from the place where the unfortunate Dora found tragic death.
The witness that fateful afternoon shortly before the wild murder had visited her son’s grave. She left her handbag on the front and went behind the monument. Worried if someone took her bag, as she had heard of similar incidents, she watched around her and then she noticed a man talking on his cell phone.
He saw him going to the point that later the unfortunate taxi collector was stabbed. What impressed her was that he had a chain hung over his pocket.
“It seemed very strange to me when I saw the chain hanging behind his left leg. I could not tell if he was hanging from his belt or his pocket. However, I remember he was wearing jeans, “the witness said.
“I saw him going over there and then he came back. All this time he was talking on the phone. ”
She did not notice the features of his face except his silhouette, the chain he wore. As she said, she does not believe that the figure of this man fits with Soropides.
The dialogue from the prison…
Manolis Soppidis spoke for the second time to Angeliki Nikolouli through Domokos prison where he is detained.
The journalist conveyed the appeal from the family of unlucky Dora to reveal what happened that fatal afternoon she was murdered.
Soropides replied that since the public wants to be the guilty on, he will go to court and accept the sentence of life imprisonment.
“But yoi must know that the family will be satisfied only when they know who the real killer is,” he said. This phrase triggered the journalist.
” From the beginning you confessed that you murdered her and her blood was found in the napkins that you wiped your hands and you threw to the place. Then you also involved other people in this case. No one wants to cross an innocent as you say. The truth for her family is to learn what really happened, “the researcher insisted, who continued to ask him.
– “You tried to get rid of the knife. That means you used it … “.
-“No! “Soropides replied,” Dora grabbed my hand from the plaster … ”
– “But you did not wear plaster. The photos from the security cameras when you went to sell the cell phone show that you did not wear it, “said Angeliki Nikolouli.
– “I took it off because the gauze had blood,” he said in their characteristic dialogue.
The reporter insisted and finally replied that he was casting the plaster, left the blood gauze where she threw the girl’s bag and then re-embraced the plaster because his hand was hearting him!
He immediately changed style and conversation. He again tried to provoke the journalist’s compassion by saying that he also has a girl and understands the pain of the family. He insisted that Dora was not “lost” by his own hands, but would eventually sit in prison because he could not live with a stigma!
In a related question by Angeliki Nikolouli, he replied that the knife had been thrown together with his blouse and bloody gauze in a rubbish bin on the court …
In the constant, persistent and surprising questions of the journalist he claimed he was alone at the spot. He said he had not seen Dora only her bag. When he went to grab it, the girl caught him and pulled him from behind. He avoided clearing whether he had stabbed her and once again tried to disorient the researcher.
In a similar style he was saying and saying that “this girl must have been in life, she should not have died, at some point I will be righteous. Perfect crime does not exist! ”
