“I was with my friend. We had gone to Tuba for dinner and we were returning home. We happened to be passing by. We saw three cars: one turned left and the other two stopped in front of us, so we stopped there,” the 20-year-old, who – as he explained – was sitting in the passenger seat, began his testimony. Untangling his tangle of memories, he went on to say that he saw 4 to 5 people get out of the two front vehicles. “They started running towards there (s.s. point of murder). We heard some voices, we said they would argue. I saw most of them with hoods, 2-3 didn’t have them, but I didn’t see clear faces […]

They cursed him Mars, they cursed him PAOK, each other,” he said, stressing that he was in shock. Asked to answer if he saw what was happening at the scene of the killer, he said that “I didn’t have good eye contact». He testified that two people “were not exactly at the incident”, but near the above two stopped cars “between the first and the second”. The witness testified that he saw the trunk of the first car being opened, from which “something, like iron, wood – it was something long” came out, with this description contrasts with what he had testified to the police when the report about the trunk was about the second vehicle. This contradiction was also pointed out by the district attorney, with the witness stating several times in his testimony that “Does not remember”.
