Amid cries of disapproval and condemnation, eight people arrested for the murder of Alkis Campanos were taken to the Thessaloniki courthouse on Monday.
There were many police officers outside the courthouse to avoid additional incidents during the transfer of the arrested. Citizens waiting for them at the entrance, seeing that the arrested were being taken out of the paddy wagon, began shouting “murderers, shame on you” and other similar “greetings”, and some threw cups of coffee at them.
Arrested – seven Greeks and an Albanian, aged 20 to 23 years, their involvement in the crime follows from the investigation materials collected by the prosecutor’s office in the case of the murder of 19-year-old Alkis Campanos.
The ninth defendant to stand trial and be prosecuted for the attack will be a 23-year-old Albanian man who was arrested 24 hours after the bloody incident. He is accused, among other things, of the crime of gang murder with deceit, committed in a series of assassination attempts.
The Thessaloniki police are looking for two more defendants in the case. Arrest warrants were issued against them. Among them is a 20-year-old Albanian who, according to journalistic information, escaped home, but this fact was not confirmed until Sunday evening by the criminal investigation department of Thessaloniki. This Albanian is also accused of another attack, along with his 23-year-old compatriot, in March 2019, in the same area of Harilau.
