At 9:50 am, Dimitris Melissanidis entered the interrogator’s office and for the next 80 minutes he gave his testimony about the “criminal organization” case. A lot of shocking evidence was given to interrogator Mr. Andreadis, including many of the things Melissanidis had mentioned in a press conference back in November, 2014 when he talked about fixed matches and other things about Greek referees.
As he left the building, Melissanidis didn’t make any comments to the media.
According to SDNA’s exclusive information, only Alexis Kougias, the president of Panahaiki is left to testify. Kougias will be the one who will close the circle of witnesses that testified and then the interrogator will proceed to the next phase of the investigation, with the case moving fast towards its final stage.
According to SDNA’s sources, sometime during March the interrogator will start calling the prosecuted to plea and then he will announce the charges.
Up to this moment, 16 people have been prosecuted in the degree of felony:
1) Three members of the Directors’ Board of EPO (Greek Football Federation)
2) One former member (high-ranked) of the Directors’ Board of EPO.
3) Two former members of KED (Central Committee of Refereeing – the committee responsible for the assignment of referees in games).
4) Three active referees of Super League.
5) Two presidents of Super League teams.
6) Five other individuals, reportedly members of jurisdictional bureau/offices of EPO.
