The investigator decided to accept the requests filed by the defendant’s lawyer, Alexis Kougias, for the summons of specific witnesses, while in the coming days the Misdemeanor Council of Athens will decide the request submitted for the nullity of the preliminary trial.
“Today is an excellent day for justice, because the regular interrogation accepted all our requests and the investigator Ms. Tzortzatou accepted that all those witnesses who were not examined in the pre-trial and who for this reason were not examined should have been examined were also examined in the regular interrogation. He will invite everyone who is mentioned,” stressed Alexis Kougias.
Mr. Kougias questions the conclusion of the medical examiners Karakoukis – Kalogrias on the deaths of Malena and Iris which he characterizes as premeditated. He requested that Christos Kravvaritis, medical examiner of the Forensic Service of Larissa, Fotios Hatjinikolau, associate professor of forensics at the Medical School of A.U.TH. and Symeon Mesogitis, medical examiner, be called as expert witnesses and cross-examined with the medical examiners, Nikos Karakoukis and Nikos Kalogrias.
In addition, he requests that the last two medical examiners and pathologist Christos Eftychiadis be examined additionally, but also that medical examiner Hara Spiliopoulou and cardiologist Georgios Stavroulakis be examined for the first time.
Alexis Kougias also submitted a request in order to call for testimony the medical examiner S. Tsantiris, who has done the autopsy on the order of Roula Pispirigou for the death of Malena, and the pathologist Antigoni Mitselou.
