I am sleeping on the benches…
As told Tunnel the close friend of the missing man in February 2013 he closed his shops in Heraklion and left for Athens. Shortly after he contacted a mutual friend and asked for help.
He described an ugly picture. He told our friend that he was sleeping on benches and gave the impression that he reached the ultimate poverty threshold. He was a proud and dignified man, he was not easily asking for help. Our mutual friend tried to call him on the phone, he never answered the call and since then we lost his tracks, he said.
