The person who had accompanied Michalis Sariklis, pretending to be his friend and financially harassing him, was found (unanimously ???) guilty of the crime of intentional homicide in a calm state of mind by the Mixed Jury Court of the Aegean.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment and taken to prison.

The countdown had begun a few hours earlier when the prosecutor in her speech suggested his guilt. She made extensive reference to the show and its contribution to the investigation of the crime on November 10, 2016 in Kedros, Samos.
As the prosecutor pointed out, from the beginning there were serious delays and wrong actions by the Samos Security police.
The result was that three years passed with the killer moving free and giving courage to the sons of 92-year-old Sariklis who were looking for their missing man.
The pressure exerted on the accused by the “Tunnel” investigation highlighted his contradictions, the prosecutor stressed. This provoked the re-mobilization of the local police, as a result of which they finally extracted the confession of the perpetrator.
The prosecutor rejected the accusations of Sariklis’ killer who spoke about an accident. As he said, the multiple fractures in his skull, the concealment of the corpse and the constant deception of the Authorities, prove his deceit in committing the crime.
The Sariklis case is the 26th murder that the “Tunnel” helped to shed light on.
