The son accused of murdering his father, Giorgos Karyotis, was temporarily detained after his confession, by unanimous decision of the Investigator and Prosecutor.
Vangelis, who was looking for his father’s killer in the “Tunnel”, is charged with intentional homicide in a calm state of mind.
His non-arrest after being prosecuted for such a heinous crime had caused strong reactions in the legal world. After that, the Investigator sent a summons for an apology to the alleged perpetrator.
Before his apology, statements were taken from defense witnesses he proposed and in particular from his sister Katerina. His partner, Pandora, was also present at the Courthouse of Rhodes, who testified that the defendant did not seek to manipulate two of his colleagues to change the statements they gave before police officers of the island’s Security Sub-Directorate.
His two colleagues with their statements wanted him to pretend that he is talking to his father on June 14, 2022, which is impossible, because he was already murdered according to the result of the forensic report.
He claimed he had phoned his partner ‘Pandora’ and his colleagues heard him call her by her name and mistakenly thought he had said ‘father’.
The lawyer Despina Grylli, after her client’s apology, wanted to take a position on the matter.
