Giannousakis told Diki Show of Skai TV that Marinakis has been following Kotsonis's movements over the Noor1 case (the ship which contained two tons of heroine) and he was informed for the ship.
Have you ever traveled along with Marinakis to Dumbai?
No, never, I just met him in Dumbai.
Who was the one who introduced you to Marinakis?
Why did you meet him in Dumbai?
It happened in 2013. It was a chance to meet up with Bourdouvalis. Mr Kotsonis fixed this meeting.
What did you discuss there?
I just met him. Mr Bourdouvalis had a conversation as their companies have been collaborating.
Mr Bourdouvalis is also in custody, right?
Have you met up again with Mr Marinakis in Dumbai?
We have met up two or three times. But they were social meetings basically and they had very little to do with business.
In Dumbai or in Athens?
Never in Athens?
We have met up in Athens. But we had never a business meeting.
But you met him in 2013 for the first time in Dumbai, right?
Yeah, in Dumbai, in 2013.
And every meeting was planned through Kotsonis?
Yes, through Kotsonis.
Do you feel that Marinakis was aware of Kotsonis's movements?
Kotsonis claims that Marinakis was aware of them. He knew also over the purchase of the Noor1.
Did he know what the ship contained?
I don't know it. But I know that he has been following Kotsonis movements as long as he was very close to him.
Do you think that Kotsonis has been informing him?
I think that they were in close contact for plenty of things. One of them was Noor1 for sure.
The fact that your kids are friends does not influence your social relationship?
Our kids are friends from themselves. This has nothing to do with me and his father.
Has your kid been visiting Marinakis's home?
No, as far as I'm concerned.
Marinakis's son has been visiting our home.
