Serious suspicions of trying to cover up the 19-year-old’s case stem from the attitude of police officers who illegally detained the victim for more than 24 hours for no reason.
The course of events: the unhurried detention of a police officer, the delay in the transfer of the girl to the Gennimatas hospital and, of course, her temporary detention in the police station without permission to communicate with lawyers, while the young victim was going through an endless nightmare.
Background in the publication: A 19-year-old girl was detained and traded by a police officer
It is noteworthy that the police officers of the Ilioupoli department, where the girl was originally sent, did not take a written statement from her. In the hospital, the situation was similar: the information said that she was treated as if she were a prisoner.
The father and the policeman are now facing serious charges, and over time, shocking facts are being revealed. According to sources, the girl met the 39-year-old police officer two months ago and entered into a relationship with him. But she had no idea what would happen next …
After unspeakable torture, beatings and brutal threats with the use of … a pistol, a 19-year-old woman escaped hell on Sophokli Venizelou Street in Ilioupoli by asking for help from a cafeteria employee located just 200 meters from the hotel.
Obsession with “pink ribbons”, expensive tastes and a passion for weapons.
The 39-year-old police officer, who served in the patrol subdivision and was already on leave of absence due to problematic behavior, went so far that he began to threaten his colleagues: “I will put a bullet in your head.”
He was active on social networks and posted photos in which he did not hide his passion for weapons. Like the one where he is depicted shooting at the shooting range.
The man posed as a tough and rich macho man. The policeman, who officially lived on one salary, not only did not hide his passion for a luxurious life, but also tried to show his coolness by publishing pictures where he drank expensive champagne and rode on a luxury yacht.
In another photo, he is wearing a cap and glasses with the words “terrorist or anti-terrorist” posing from the Areopagos.
It should be noted that the appearance of a 39-year-old man at Evelpidon (Athens Prosecutor’s Office) wearing a T-shirt of a famous Greek pornography company produced a negative impression.
The case caused a serious political scandal
Meanwhile, a political scandal erupted in parliament over how the case of a 19-year-old girl was handled, and SYRIZA spoke of “the corruption of the Greek police during the times of Mitsotakis and Chrysochoidis.”
In fact, with his statement, the representative of SYRIZA-PS, Nassos Iliopoulos, requests answers from the political leadership of the Ministry for the Protection of Citizens on this incident. “For more than 24 hours, the girl was held for no reason by the Greek police, without any contact with her lawyers, while she complained that a police officer had captured her and abused her,” said Mr. Iliopoulos.
At the same time, he talks about attempts to hush up the case, saying that the official opposition will not allow any concealment. “Once again, all notions of the rule of law are violated, and there is a ‘smell of cover-up’. And be sure of one thing: we will not allow any “hood”, ”he said characteristically.
Την ιστορία της κοπέλας που ασελγούσε πάνω της ο πατέρας της και στη συνέχεια αστυνομικός, δεν πρέπει μλναναδου
Κάθε γυναίκα, κάθε άντρας έχουν το δικαίωμα στην αυτοδιάθεση του σώματός τους. Από εκεί ξεκινάει η Δικαιοσύνη.

Tsipras: Girl abuse is not an isolated incident
“The story of a girl who was abused by her father and then a police officer should not be seen as an isolated incident, but as a collective process,” said SYRIZA President Alexis Tsipras in a Twitter post. “Every woman, every man has the right to dispose of his body. Justice starts from here, ”he said.
The MeRA25 party in a statement condemned “yesterday’s damaging police manipulation in the case of a 19-year-old girl who reported ill-treatment by a fellow police officer who held her against her will.”
He adds that “the girl who reported the incident, instead of being taken to a hospital and a forensic expert, was detained for several hours at the Greek Police Department in a poor psychosomatic state, without access to a lawyer, which she was entitled to. At the same time, the offender was taken into custody without arrest and taken to the police station ”.
MERA25 also expresses its concern, pointing out that “all of this worries us, especially with regard to the treatment of EL.AS. and creates a reasonable suspicion of a possible attempt to cover up the incident. It was averted by the belligerent presence of feminist organizations outside the Internal Affairs Directorate. ”
Chrysosaidis’s Angry Response
For his part, the Minister of Citizens Protection Michalis Chrysochoidis, responding to criticism of the official opposition for the actions of the police in the case of a 19-year-old teenager, accuses SYRIZA of vulgarity.
Details of the statement of Michalis Chrysochoidis
It was not my intention to make any statements about this dramatic human story. However, the vulgar attitude of SYRIZA to the topic got me. Yesterday the police, or rather the Internal Investigation Service, made 2 arrests, including one against a police officer. The arrested police officer, who was already on leave before his dismissal, is charged with serious crimes, including human trafficking.
After actions EL.AS. the matter is now in the hands of justice. The incident that led to the two arrests underscores the heinous aspects of domestic violence, a longstanding problem that is shameful to society. EL.AS. has already established a Department to Combat Domestic Violence, but the problem is broader and requires general awareness.
Incidents like this yesterday, when a competent police department, under the supervision of a Deputy Attorney of Appeal, is effectively carrying out its work to investigate these serious crimes against the victim, is nowhere seen by any serious party as a political opportunity anywhere in the world. But not for SYRIZA and its unverified representatives, who try, without a shadow of shame, to pursue all cases of human suffering in a guerrilla way.
