After a one-month break due to the summer vacation of the courts, the trial of Petros Filippidis continues today (01.09.2022) at the Mixed Jury Court of Athens with witness statements.
The hearing process for the trial of Petros Filippidis has started since last March and is expected to continue at a rapid pace in September.
The trial continues with the testimony of a close friend of the third complainant who has reported Petros Filippidis for attempted rape in 2014, inside his car.
The witness began to be examined at the previous session of the court on July 29, but her testimony was not completed and will continue today with questions from the defense.
The friend of the third complainant reported at the previous meeting that she saw her friend shortly after what had happened in the actor’s car.
In fact, he described her as a person “dark, speechless, as if something terrible had happened to her, she had lived the worst nightmare of her life”.
The witness at the previous court session described in detail what her friend confided in her and referred to her psychological and physical condition. “I asked her what happened and she was unable to answer. She only told me that she was miserable, that the meeting went badly and that he attacked her. She couldn’t speak, she was ready to cry. Since we had to go to the show I didn’t push her more at that time. Over the next few days, when he calmed down a bit, he began to tell details. He told me he had a nightmare. It was the worst nightmare of her life and she wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” she said in her deposition.
The next witnesses expected to testify are also relatives and friends of the women who have denounced Petros Filippidis, while the list of witnesses includes the president of SEH, Spyros Bibilas, as well as the wife of Petros Filippidis, Elpina Ninou, who will probably be examined the upcoming week.
