What happened last Thursday night where the incidents took place outside the volleyball court in Rentis between Olympiakos and Panathinaikos is described in detail in the case file filed against the 18-year-old, for launching a naval flare at a man from the MAT, which resulted in the injury of the 31-year-old police officer.

As mentioned in the text, in the service there were anonymous complaints about individuals that are likely to be related to the attack. Following the complaints, EL.AS. looked for two men, an 18-year-old and a 26-year-old.

The 26-year-old was spotted, on Saturday, near his home in the Peristeri area and was brought in by the police. During his apology, he claimed that he had nothing to do with the attack and wounding of the police officer. He claimed that although he went to the stadium to carry banners to be placed in the stands, he left before the incidents began. As the 26-year-old said during his “few minutes of stay, people from around him told him that there were going to be incidents from some fans who would deliberately attack the police forces” outside the gym.

The 18-year-old’s partner reported that when she met up close with her partner, he told her that he was afraid that his prints would be found on some tobacconist which he had “held with his hands for a short time, which had been given to him by some unknown person shortly before the episodes began.”

During the examination, the 18-year-old confessed that he threw the naval flare. He followed other Olympiacos fans out of the stadium, who moved towards the police.

One of them had his features covered and addressing the others, he motivated them to go to the police forces. After they got out, the same man gave him a naval flare and urged him to throw it, characteristically telling him: “Get it here, take the cap off the back, pull the rope and aim at the b…s.”

After they approached the police forces, “he wanted to throw the flare he was holding in the air, but after he launched it, it hit the ground and then injured a police officer in the leg. Afraid of what had happened, he returned to the interior of the stadium and reported to his company what had happened.

In addition, he said that fearing the consequences, he changed his phone number and email and deleted the photos he had posted on his profile on a social networking site.

Regarding the people to whom he confided that he injured the YAT police officer with the naval flare, the defendant stated that, in addition to the people he was with at the stadium, he informed his partner and his brother about the incident.

“All of the above, except for one whose details were identified later, confirmed his claims” as it is added.

It is recalled that the 18-year-old is accused of attempted murder, while the case file also concerns another man, unidentified, who is accused of moral turpitude.
