Her father’s oath left no one unmoved. “As long as I live, I will look for the truth about my child,” he said on the show.
The family’s lawyer, Anastasios Dougas, spoke about the indictment he filed with the Prosecutor’s Office, asking for a re-examination of key witnesses in the case, including the young man whom Artemis had met shortly before his disappearance.
The show contacted him again, but he declined to give details about their relationship.
“I do not know what everyone has in their head. “I do not know what was hidden inside her…”, he answered angrily to the journalist’s multiple questions.
“I told you, I have nothing to do, you are looking completely wrong. I told you twice I saw her all in my life. One at the sea and one for coffee in Piraeus. These became the end of summer and she disappeared in October, so many months later. How could I have anything to do with her disappearance… And what did she say when she came to my house? I have told everything to the police. Everything I know, I have submitted. I had no contact, do you understand? She may have been pressured by hers, I know. “They should not let her go out and she should leave.”
“As long as I live, I will look for my child…”
Mr. Giannis, Artemis’s father, excitedly talks about his decision to continue the search for his daughter as long as he lives. He also refers bitterly to those who accuse them.
“Artemis had two friends who grew up together for over sixteen years, from the infant they kept company. They suddenly forgot about us. They left and I’m looking to find the reason. I appeal to these girls, if they know something, to come out and say it. ”
He also referred to the obstruction of the Authorities but also to the targeting of his family.
“Nothing was done right in the investigation. From the day the case went to GADA, things are going a little better. The last place to look is our family. We were and remain a close-knit family. I will not stop looking. I will die with this misery… What happened to us, does not happen to any family. I have thought of the bad scenario, but I do not want to put it in my mind. “I pray that nothing bad has happened to Artemis”, he concluded.
Artemis disappeared on Friday, October 16, 2020 from Koropi, where she was staying with her family.
It has a height of 1.62 and for its disappearance it has meant Silver Alert.
