On the morning of Wednesday, October 12th, the first witness which was called to testify was Vasilis Kokkinis’ brother, Konstantinos.
As he said, from the very first moment that his brother’s traces were lost, he realized that something bad had happened to him. Fifteen days after the disappearance, he went to the victim’s home and found it upset. But he was not convinced that his brother had been the victim of a robbery.
For the 50-year-old basic accused wife of his brother 50-year-old woman, Anelia Alessandrova, he reported that she was exploiting her financially and that her behavior changed to the worst since the birth of her son.
He also pointed out that in 2008 he had disbursed the money of 230,000 euros with false data from her husband’s account and immediately afterwards left with her son to Bulgaria.
Following the legal actions of the victim who took custody of the child, Alessandrova was forced to return to Greece. According to Konstantinos Kokkinis, his brother continued to support her for the sake of his son, resulting in a conflict with both relatives and friends.
Then a police officer who was present in the arrest of the second accused, a 27-year-old also from Bulgaria, brought to testify.
He confirmed that he heard her say he was holding the child on the balcony while Alessandrova and two other escapees killed Kokkinis.
The accused herself argued that she did not recognize that police officer.
The defendant’s defense lawyer, Petros Mantouvalos, has filed a lawsuit to bring to court the 15-year-old son of the unfortunate man who is living at a Bulgarian institution. The prosecutor’s proposal was negative. The Session’s decision on the request is expected.
Afterwards. they deposited Alessandrova’s neighbors and friends of Kokkinis. They all argued that the motive for killing her child’s father was money. Her behavior has often been degrading to him with the fights being frequent. His friends from the first moment had advised him to take her away.
The trial will continue on 30th of October with the hearing of the witnesses and the accused accusations.
