It’s about Marianna Kontouli who disappeared in the summer of 2002 at the age of 70 years old from Amaliapoli where she lived recently.
The information available to the Investigator led Justice to a plot in the area, owned by one of those convicted in the case.
On the morning of Wednesday 18 December 2019, a small chapel is excavated to locate the bones of the unfortunate woman and investigations may take days.
In May 2018, the Larissa Three-Member Court of Appeals sentenced the businessman and her friend Kontoulis to nine years in prison for the financial part of the case.
He was found guilty of non-mitigating fraud and ethics in forgery, and acquitted of the charge of fraud against the public and two misdemeanors.
The court sentenced another businessman to seven years in prison for fraud and ethics in forgery, and found him innocent of fraud against the state.
A doctor was also found guilty, who was sentenced to seven years in prison on the same charges.
Marianna Kontouli was a ballerina and ballet teacher. She had a dance school in Kifissia where she stayed alone. Before losing track of her, she had been isolated by relatives and friends and had moved to Amaliapoli, Volos, to her country house.
Her fatal mistake was allegedly that she trusted the wrong persons to manage her large real estate, which reached 700 acres of coastal land in the greater Volos area.
It thus fell into the trap they set up with the attorney who put her to sign and sell off her property.
Relatives are still waiting for answers to the crucial question, where she is buried. Possibly this new round of investigations has begun to give answers to the thriller of Amaliapoli after 17 whole years.
