Her lawyer Apostolos Lytra described the 38-year-old as “scared”, according to

“We are dealing with an abused woman, who was afraid of this particular man because, as she says, it was not the first time he had hit her. That day he suffered an attack and reacted by throwing the liquid on him. She was afraid of him and still very much afraid of him”, he emphasized, among other things, while according to what the 38-year-old has reported to Apostolos Lytra, there was no accomplice.

At the same time, Mr. Lytras pointed out that he is ready to explain everything to the investigator, regarding the caustic liquid he threw on the 36-year-old.

This liquid is not vitriol. It is a simple cleaning liquid that he had ordered in large quantity for cleaning. This liquid will now be analyzed and proved to be no vitriol. He had not planned anything,” said the well-known criminologist.

For his part, Manos Drakonakis, the 38-year-old’s advocate, stated that the specific woman “hasn’t concerned the authorities, not even a call has been cut off” while she is expected to be examined by a medical examiner.
