The first 16 defendants out of the total of 35 arrested in the third group of defendants for the bloody incidents outside the AEK stadium in New Philadelphia in the early hours of 8/8 have been remanded in custody.

Among them is the Croatian accused who was transferred to Evangelismos hospital as he became unwell during his detention.

The process of apologies will be completed today with the apology of the remaining 35 of the 105 arrested, while it is recalled that both the first group of 30 arrested and the second group of 40 were all deemed remand.

Apologies continue for the last 17 accused.

Bats, styli, boxers’ protective armpits and all kinds of paraphernalia used by hooligans in organized attacks, the authorities found in a hidden arsenal, a few meters away from the scene of Michalis Katsouri’s murder at the New Philadelphia stadium.

The findings have been transferred to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations where they will be analyzed for genetic material, while at the same time police are reviewing video footage from the scene to determine whether those involved in the attack hid weapons at the site.

“We found blood on many of their weapons. We analyze the blood. We are frantically searching for a person who helped him. The last person who spoke to him, what he lied to him, what he said to him”, says the police analyst, Stavros Balaskas

In the Forensic Laboratories, the comparison of the DNA of those arrested, with the genetic material from the evidence that has been identified, and with the samples taken and the forensic examination continues, to determine if there is an identification that will reveal the murderer.

The fatal blow has been captured on video material in the possession of the Police.

They are also looking for other suspects

Cameras around the AEK stadium in New Philadelphia seem to have recorded additional suspects, who have so far eluded arrest, for the bloody incidents in the early hours of 8/8.

The above can undoubtedly be considered reasonable considering how the arrests are up to this time 105 while the hooligans who starred in the bloody episodes are estimated at least 150.

In any case, according to what the authorities report, in the list of suspects which has been compiled in relation to the possible perpetrator of the murder of 29-year-old Michalis, there are people who are not included among the 105 arrested.

Security men have spent the last few days gathering video from security cameras of the area’s shops and the stadium in an attempt to piece together the tragic events.

In fact, from the processing and study of the relevant material, the extent of the murderous rampage against the unfortunate Michalis can be seen since, as captured on the cameras, after the fatal stabbing, the 29-year-old, in his attempt to escape from the scene, receives blows from behind with bats .
