The lawyer representing the actor today appeared before the prosecutor and, on behalf of his client, requested a 15-day delay to testify by Petros Filippidis, since he decided not to appear in court and at this stage of the investigation has the right to do so.
Reportedly, after studying the materials of the case that was formed against the famous actor, i.e. the testimony of three women who reported rape and two attempted rapes, in two weeks the famous actor will testify in court.
After that, as well as in conjunction with other materials of the case, it will be decided whether the prosecutor will initiate a criminal case against the accused.
The Association of Greek Actors filed a complaint against Petros Filippidis with the prosecutor’s office in the context of an investigation into the Greek #me_too (harassment, sexual harassment in the workplace).
The first applicant reportedly told the prosecutor that she had been raped by an actor in 2008 in a theater when she went there to find a job.
The second woman revealed that she was sexually assaulted by a famous actor in 2010, in his dressing room. According to her, they met in the theater to discuss professional issues, and he dragged her into the dressing room, making an attempt to rape. However, the woman desperately resisted (it came to a fight), and she managed to avoid the worst.
The third victim claims that in 2014, after a business meeting, the actor kindly offered to take her home in his car. The girl agreed. However, the attacker took her to a secluded place and tried to rape her.
