Supreme Court Prosecutor G. Adelinis summoned V. Marinakis on a complaint against "criminal organization in football"

The prosecutor of the Supreme Court G. Adilini invited the shipowner, publisher and owner of Olympiacos V. Marinakis to testify on Tuesday 05.12.23 regarding the riots during the match between Volos and Olympiacos (2:2).

In particular, according to the statement of the prosecutor’s office: “Following the receipt of a complaint by Π.Α.Ε. ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΟΣ on Tuesday, December 3, 2023, the prosecutor of the Supreme Court, Ms. Georgia Adilini, invited Mr. Evangelos Marinakis, President of Π.Α.Ε. ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΟΣ, on Tuesday 5 December for him to inform her and the Deputy Prosecutor of the Supreme Court, Mr. Georgios Ikonomou, who oversees the work of the prosecutors responsible for sports, about this case.”

The game at the Panthesaliko Stadium (Πανθεσσαλικό) between Olympiacos and Volos last Sunday resulted in riots and the use of tear gas by the police shortly after a disallowed goal was scored against the Piraeus team. With the score 2:2, Olympiacos found themselves in the Volos goal twice, but both goals from Masura and El Kaabi were ruled offside by VAR.

The incident angered the crowd in the stands and some of them walked out of the field, while several chairs were thrown from the stands and police used tear gas to control the fans. As a result, the match was stopped.

The amount of tear gas was too much, and as a result the crowd left the stands, and players from both teams, experiencing severe breathing problems, went to the locker rooms.

The judges did the same. As a result, after some time, it was decided to continue the game, the players of both teams returned to the field, fought for several minutes, and the game ended with a score of 2:2.
