The 24-year-old gave two statements – one at 15:00 on January 1 and the second at 23:00 on the same day, according to the data published by the First Issue. In her testimony, she talks about “two men who are taking advantage of my weakness due to excessive alcohol consumption”, offering to use drugs and specifically cocaine, while she notes: “I have heard that Manos works in the same way with other girls”.
The first testimony of the 24-year-old
Georgia, in its first statement made on January 1 at 15:00 to the White Tower Security Department, stated the following:
“At around 20:30 on December 31, 2021, I started from my house in Lagada, Thessaloniki, to go to a party for the change of the year at a friend’s house on Karolou Dill Street in Thessaloniki. I stayed there and changed the New Year’s Eve time and consumed a large amount of alcohol. Then together with my girlfriend we went out with my car to the hotel … which is located on the street … in Thessaloniki where a friend of mine had invited us and there was a New Year’s party in the room with the number 401.
»About 15 people in the area and there was, and a buffet of alcohol. From the buffet I got a glass of champagne first and then I got a second one consuming it too. Around 4:00 on January 1, 2022 I left the party with my girlfriend and we went down to the entrance of the hotel where my friend’s mother was waiting for us to pick her up. I was also offered to go with them, but I refused as I did not want to leave my car there.
“I tried to find it but to no avail as, as I said, I had taken a large amount of alcohol and so we ended up sleeping in the hotel. Then I returned to the hotel and paid for one night with cash at the hotel reception. I went to the elevator, but I do not remember which floor I went up to. Walking down the aisle of the hotel I tried to find the room I had booked for the night and I met two men, who offered to help me and led me to a room, the number of which I do not remember due to drunkenness. “Today she woke up in the hotel room bed around 10:40 and found that the dress I was wearing was up and that my underwear and the sanitary napkin I was wearing, being menstruating, were missing.”
“Looking for my underwear, I found it on the floor near the sleeping bed. I immediately suspected that I might have been raped. I looked around the room and found that it was obviously not what I had booked for the night as there was a dark suitcase on the floor containing men’s clothing. Also at the table at the entrance of the room I found a two-position tab containing a pill that said “sandoz”, while the second pill was not in it. I searched the internet and found the description that this ad for male baby enlargement and sexual activity. Then I checked if something was missing from my bag and found that only the amount of money he would spend on booking the room was missing. “I do not have any obvious injuries on any part of my body.”
Question: Do you think they have been raped?
Answer: Yes, although I do not remember anything related.
Question: Do you think that the perpetrators against you are the two men who were willing to help you find your room?
Response: Yes, I think these are the perpetrators against me.
Question: Do you remember him mentioning the characteristics of the above men?
Answer: I only remember that one of the two men was young with relatively short blond hair, had blue eyes and told me in good Greek that he was from Athens. I can not remember the other at all, as, as I said above, I was in a state of intoxication. Also, I do not remember anything from the moment they met the two men who became and went with me.
Question: Leaving the room when he woke up, did you see which room you were in?
Answer: I was in a state of panic at the time and what I was doing was getting out of there as fast as I could. I did not see anything. I left the room, got in the elevator and ran to my car, which was parked in the back of the hotel, got on it and came to your service. I want them prosecuted for the act against me. I would like a forensic examination. I have nothing else to add and sign. “
The additional deposit of the 24-year-old
At 23:00 on January 1, the 24-year-old goes again to the security department of the White Tower, where she gives an additional deposit. There he states that: “Following the affidavit from 1.1.22 at 15:00, I came after your invitation to testify additionally”.
Question: At what point did you stop remembering what happened during your stay at the hotel …?
Response: I lost my memory of what happened after I paid at the hotel reception and booked a room, since I was not able to drive my car and I did not remember where I had parked it. From that moment on I remember occasional events, which I mentioned in my first testimony. In fact, as the hours passed, some things began to unravel in my mind.
Question: Who invited you to the party you mentioned?
Answer: At the party that took place in a hotel room … he invited us through messages, but also to come close to Manos, whom I know because he works in the cafeteria …, where I was with my girlfriend E …, earlier . on December 31, 2021. In fact, I can say with certainty that he insisted on going there. I told him that I would come with a friend of mine E … Here I want to add that I have heard that Manos works in the same way with other girls. He can do it intentionally and invite them to various places that are made in hotels or rental houses. I do not know if it is true. However, he has sent me to a similar party about four times. Today I wanted to go to the party with my girlfriend to spend a happy New Year. At another party, which I went to and to which Manos invited me, I slept with a boy who I liked, of my own free will and without anything sexual happening between us.
Question: What is your relationship with Manos?
Answer: I just know him. He himself has flirted with me at parties and with messages.
Question: Can Manos invite girls to accompany men who attend parties of this kind?
Response: Yes, it does. Like I told you, he has invited me to such parties four more times. I insisted on going to one I did not go to.
Question: Does he pay you to attend these parties?
Response: No never. However, he asked me earlier in 2021 if I wanted to to use substances and in particular cocaine, to offer me and I answered in the negative.
Question: What exactly was going on at the hotel you went to?
Answer: At the hotel, as I said, there was a New Year’s Eve party to have a good time. Most of the people were women who were even more expressive than me and my girlfriend. There I drank two champagnes myself and a RedBull vodka that someone offered me. There were about 15 people and they were having fun using music, from a bluetooth speaker. I got my girlfriend E …, I only knew one more girl named M … We just went to have fun. After I went downstairs and let my girlfriend go, I closed – as I mentioned in the first deposit – a room there, because I could not drive. I took the elevator and went upstairs. I was looking for my room. As soon as I walked down the aisle I met the two people I mentioned initially. They asked me if I wanted to sleep with them. I told them I had my own room and then they insisted that I sleep in them. I was not forced to go to a room. I do not feel violence or pain in my body. I do not remember if I went voluntarily to the room that woke up the next day. I do not even remember how many I went there with.
Question: We show you four men alive Α, Β, Γ and Δ (it is mentioned that men with elements Β.Λ., Κ.Π, Ευ.Λ and Β.Τ.) were shown with the same recognizes B.L. as the man who asked her to sleep with her and insisted, against her will, she just did not remember, as she says, what happened next.
In fact, he says that he wants his criminal prosecution, saying characteristically: “It was not exercised on my part by him, but the intercourse that followed would not have taken place, if I had been sober. Both men took advantage of my weakness due to excessive alcohol consumption. “I do not know if my drink contained any other substance.”
Question: Do you want to add something else?
Answer: In the morning, after waking up in the hotel room, I saw a message that Manos sent me at 10:50 and he asked me where I was. I replied that I was at the hotel, we talked on the phone and he asked me to take my things and sleep at his house. I said I would leave the hotel and closed, I called him again, after I realized what exactly happened to me and I asked him why I found pills, why I was not wearing underwear, why I was in a room with men’s clothes and things and not mine. In a trembling voice he asked me if I would go to him and I said no and we closed.
“Finally, I want to add that I am even wearing my underwear and I will present it to you tomorrow when you will go to examine the doctor at the judicial service of Thessaloniki. At your request, I am handing over to you two urine collectors containing a sample of urine taken on duty, to be sent to the competent department for examination to determine substances that I may have consumed, against my will, the previous night and I have nothing else to do. I will add. “
