The prosecution for spreading false news against the former rector of AUTh and former president of “Attiko Metro” has stopped. “The road to criminalizing the political dispute is slippery,” he said.
Mylopoulos is “clean”. Double dismissal of the former rector of AUTh and former president of “Attiko Metro” for the accusation of spreading counterfeit goods. After the filing of the case focusing on the vaccinations of EODY by the Athens Prosecutor’s Office and the Single Member Misdemeanor Court of Thessaloniki, the poetic prosecution against Giannis Mylopoulos ceased.
This is a case that could be characterized as legal stinginess, since a post by the former rector came under the microscope of two importers and occupied the Criminal Justice for so long for something insignificant. But it happened!
In November 2020, in a post on Facebook, which he later withdrew, Mr. Milopoulos stated that an acquaintance of his waited for hours to do a quick test of EODY in Nea Paralia, Thessaloniki, and in the end he left without notice. coronavirus positive. EODY, however, denied that such a thing had happened, reserving the right to take legal action against it, which it did!
Somehow, the head of the Prosecutor’s Office of First Instance, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos, ordered a preliminary examination for the dispersal of false items! The case was forwarded to a court of law in order for witnesses to be called, as well as Mr. Milopoulos himself to testify illegally and ended up at the hearing of the Single-Member Misdemeanor Court of Thessaloniki.
However, a similar investigation was ordered in Athens, following a lawsuit filed by the president of EODY, Panagiotis Arkoumaneas, who also provoked a corresponding criminal investigation. Only in the capital things took a different turn and there the case was filed without even having to reach an audience.
Following this, it was natural for the court of Thessaloniki, which followed, not to accept the former reasoned acquittal of the former rector from the charges as formulated by the Athens Prosecutor’s Office, with the consent of the Appellate Prosecutor’s Office, and to acquit him.
“My acquittal of the unjust charges of spreading counterfeit goods was a moral justification for one, revealing that the prosecution against me was premeditated and of a purely political nature. The fact that then government representative Stelios Petsas announced in the press briefing, on 9/11/2020, my poetic prosecution, one day before EODY submits the indictment against me, is the best proof that my persecution was a A purely politically motivated government election aimed at targeting, derailing, and killing my character. “The government’s tolerance of criticism and the vengeful way in which it treats those who disagree with it,” he told Ef.Syn. Mr. Milopoulos.
