Angeliki Nikolouli aired a part of the conversation she had with him. He refused he had arranged to meet Dimitris Graikos on the fateful night that was lost, as the information Tunnel received said.
He claimed he did not know him at all, but he noticed that the photos of the missing person that the show presented were older. He claimed he had left alone and that he is hiding.
He was still wondering who gave Tunnel the specific information about him, and he said he had testified to the police about the case. He also said that he is not related to rich, prominent and well-respected people.
The second part of Angeliki Nikolouli’s conversation with the wife of the missing entrepreneur from Thessaloniki was heard in the show. She focused on the merchant’s deal with her husband in the slaughterhouse before he was lost, questioning that he gave him the seventeen thousand euros he mentioned.
For his part the trader gave his own reply to the reporter. He argued that he was the first person to be examined by the police after the disappearance and that the evidence he filed confirms his words.
The missing entrepreneur’s nephew and niece spoke to “Tunnel” and mentioned details that appear in the CCTV material that recorded the latest moves of Graikos before disappearing from the face of the earth.
Angeliki Nikolouli said the authorities should not wait to find the missing businessman’s car, especially now that the case is being investigated as a murder.
“We are seeing mouths opening and saying things that have not been told in the past,” he said.
The legal representative of the siblings of Graikos Nikos Dialinas was found in the studio of the show and said:
“I am in the position to know that the Authorities do not rely on the car. Specific persons are re-examined, and the witness circle has widened. But there is a question. The trader should tell us where the car was going after when he followed him. My opinion is that in this case must be done in contrast examinations but also with a representation. ”
For his part, the former Police Director Thanassis Katerinopoulos estimated that the wife of Graikos and the merchant with whom the businessman had been traded before he lost, agree on a common point. That someone knew about the money.
“It is in this new round of investigations, all to be considered from another perspective,” he said.
The wife: He did not give him the money he says
One year after the mysterious disappearance of Dimitris Graikos his wife broke up her long silence and spoke to Angeliki Nikolouli.
She argued that throughout this time, no matter how much she searched, she found no evidence if her husband had differences with someone or received threats.
“What I think is that maybe some people were informed at the slaughterhouses that he would have a lot of money on him. If someone attempted to rob him, Dimitris, because he was nervous, would certainly resist. But the thieves would not leave him there and leave?” she asked, and continued:
“It’s something else I think. The merchant says he gave him seventeen thousand euros. Seven for the slaughter of that day and ten as a down payment for the next slaughter. Personally, I do not think he took that money. Who pays with such a crisis for the next animal slaughter? At the last massacre the animals were sick. Do you understand; The other animals in the unit were “clean”. There was no reason to kill them. I could if I wanted to keep them. Why take this risk and give such an advance? ” she emphasized.
Merchant: From the beginning, they searched me
Angeliki Nikolouli contacted the particular merchant, who gave his own version of what he heard against him.
“I do not want to confront with Graikos’s wife if I gave or did not give him the money. All I had to say I told ten times at the police. Now if I gave him or did not give him, they know what has happened. It’s over, I do not talk again about this. There have been documents, there are invoices. I, on my part, said all the truth, ” he said in a categorical tone.
In a related question by the reporter on recent developments in the case, he said:
“I have something in my mind, but I will not tell anything. If someone knew about the money, someone would inform them from the slaughterhouse. ”
When Angeliki Nikolouli wondered why someone needed to be from the slaughterhouses and not someone else who might have known that he was going to give him money that day, he emphasized:
“Will he stalk everywhere what happened and what did not happen? But one of his own people would know it. When he was lost, Police came first to me. I gave them all the invoices directly, all the documents, they made copies and it was over. ”
“I did not see Graikos taking money at any other slaughter…”
Tunnel returned to the place where the thriller began one year ago and has shocked public opinion. At the slaughterhouses of Chalastra from where Dimitris Graikos left the fateful afternoon of November 3, 2016, with his rural car.
“Police are also trying to figure out what happened,” Savvas Tsopozidis, head of the slaughterhouse, told the reporter.
He said he’d seen the missing businessman three times that day. In the morning, at noon and in the afternoon before leaving the slaughterhouse. Then he greeted all who were in the canteen and ate the little fiesta they had set up. He said that Graikos had programmed the slaughter of his animals, and everyone who was there then was well known.
In a related question, the reporter replied that in the previous animal slaughter, the trader was found again with Graikos to do their business, and he was present but did not see the merchant giving money to Graikos. “He is telling that this time he gave money to him, if he says so this is what happened imagine.”
“He was driving under the threat of a gun?”
For a well-executed crime spoke to “Tunnel” the niece of the missing businessman Christina Graikou.
She believes that the crucial time is when her uncle left the slaughterhouses.
“We see from the material of the CCTV, my uncle’s car, but not the driver who makes nervous movements something my uncle did not use to do. If he was the one who was driving, maybe someone threatened him with a gun … ”
George, the favorite nephew of Dimitris Graikos with whom he worked closely, ruled out the possibility that he left alone.
At first he thought he might have had an accident and fell into an irrigation canal in the area. But as the days passed and there was nothing, his mind went to evil.
“I think it was something pre-designed. I’m afraid for the worse that maybe he will never be found … ” he said.
A former Skopan partner of the entrepreneur who knew him since the 1990s and has been working on his premises since 2000 has spoken to Tunnel. No one from his relatives and acquaintances living in the neighboring country has seen or knows something about him.
The nephew of the entrepreneur continues to work on his uncle’s facilities.
“We continue with my aunt, and my cousins to revive the unit. The last animals were slaughtered in April and we went on cleaning and disinfection. I believe that the unit will recommence as soon as possible, “he said.
He who was the right hand of the businessman in the unit, said excitedly to Tunnel that he loved his uncle very much.
“We made decisions together, we did the best we could for the family business. I miss him very much … ” he stressed.
“Some wanted him dead. I think it is a crime involving more than one person. Someone definitely knows and has not yet come forward ” said Graiko’s niece to ” Tunnel “.
She appealed to anyone who knows anything to contact the authorities, even anonymously.
“One can know a significant piece that is now missing from the puzzle. Those who have been involved in this story must be punished. ”
Sister: They said I was hiding him in Germany
After the latest developments, the youngest of Dimitris Graikos sisters, , who lives in Germany, spoke to “Tunnel”.
As she said she is in frequent communication with her sister in law who claims she does not know what happened to Dimitris.
“I love their children very much. They are too much hurt … ” she said and continued:
“For me unfortunately my brother is dead. Maybe they were waiting for him outside the slaughterhouse, maybe they got into his car because it was old and he always left it unlocked … At first, a lot was heard. Until that I was hiding him in Germany. Why to hide my brother? And so if it was, if a visitor stays more than a month in this country, it must be declared. ”
She described how they grew up with Dimitris, since they were the two little ones of the family.
“Dimitris always stood beside us, but we were not by his side whe he needed us, because he was not talking…. We are sick with this story. Do you think we are sleeping? Our eyes are always with tears… Every minute we are thinking about what happened to this man. He has to be found, to rest in piece … “she said excitedly.
Even today, he leaves audio messages to his mobile phone, which oddly one year after, his line remains activated.
“I ask him if he hears me to communicate. I beg your show do not forget us, please do something to find my brother … “.
