On March 13th, Alexis Kougias, the renowned criminal lawyer and president of Panahaiki football club spent 3,5 hours testifying about the case of the “criminal organization” in Greek football. Today, he visited the office of interrogator Giorgos Andreadis once again for a secondary testimony – one that lasted even longer, almost four hours.
Kougias is the last of the witnesses who testified for this case and he offered very important information, which according to his opinion is more than enough for charges to be filed and shed light on the case.
Kougias’ information is about people of big football clubs (among others) – people who have been involved either in the past or the present. As he stated, all those who were included in his testimony are still involved with Greek football.
As SDNA mentioned in a previous article, the people under prosecution are more than 16.
Alexis Kougias said he is confident the district attorney will file charges accordingly. Kougias also stated he is willing to help in any way he can.
As it is, the case of the “criminal organization” is entering the final stage, as the accused will visit the interrogator’s office to plea. This will begin tomorrow, Wednesday 1st of April.
As for the case of the “fixed matches”, which dates back to 2011, the trial of former team president Achilleas Mpeos and referee Giorgos Daloukas is tomorrow. Alexis Kougias is a witness in that trial but he might not be present, because he needs to be present in Komotini for another case.
