As SDNA revealed in an earlier post, the list of accused individuals for the “criminal organization” case in Greek football has grown. The original number of people being prosecuted was 16, but now five more have been added.
Out of 21 defendants, 14 are being prosecuted for one felony and seven are being prosecuted for three felonies!
As it stands, five defendants have already visited the interrogator (either themselves or their lawyer) and have asked and received for a deadline to submit their plea.
Seven or even nine more will follow today and tomorrow. These are three referees, Ioanna Pantelopoulou (a member of the disciplinary commission of EPO) and three more who were added to the prosecution list after the witnesses testified.
The last seven defendants will be called after next week (the Orthodox Holy Week), but there is a difference between them and the first group.
The individuals of the first group are accused for one felony. The seven who will be called next week are seemingly the “masterminds” of the “criminal organization” and they are facing charges for three felonies.
Those seven will be called after the Holy Week because the interrogator, Mr. Giorgos Andreadis, will be absent due to personal obligations.
SDNA is watching the case closely and we will be bringing you the latest developments. Stay tuned…
