He is accused that the period from November 2017 to March 2019, during which he regularly temporarily supervised his nieces, whom he hosted in his house, he bathed separately the two minor children aged 11 and 13 years old respectively (in 2017) despite the fact that they were quite old and could do it on their own.

During the bath, the 30-year-old is accused of committing indecent acts while the same happened when he slept with the children (all three).

He is said to have caused bodily harm to children from November 2017 to March 2019, who are accused of slapping and biting their genitals. After the accusation against the 30-year-old, a criminal prosecution was instituted and he was referred to the interrogation, where, accompanied by his lawyer Mr. Costas Aslanis, he denied the accusations as they are attributed to him.

The 30-year-old even referred to the responsible statements made, a few days before his apology, by the parents of the two children, according to which they were convinced by the explanations he had given them and reconstructed the wrong impression that their behavior had caused them. .

Following the completion of the procedure, the 30-year-old was released on the restrictive conditions of being banned from leaving the country and appearing twice a month at the police station in his area.
