Agioi Anargyri: 8 fatal mistakes that led to femicide

After the brutal murder of a 28-year-old woman outside Aki Anarkiro's police station, police officers and the Ministry of Civil Defense have a series of questions to answer.

  1. When a 28-year-old woman went to the Akioi Anarkiro police station and reported to them that she was afraid of her ex-partner outside her house, why didn't the police take her to his house?
  2. Is it true that the victim filed a case of assault and rape against him in 2020?
  3. Is it true that he has shown interest in authorities in the past?
  4. Why was the young officer on duty so pragmatic and “authoritative” that he did not put himself in the shoes of the woman in front of her, but went over to help her by telling her to stay with her until the first available patrol car arrived?
  5. Did he tell her to call that immediate action so the patrol car would come faster or not?
  6. Why didn't the police officer of AT Agioi Anargyros react immediately to protect the 39-year-old when he attacked her and stabbed her to death without moving?
  7. Further, the police statement noted that the 28-year-old “did not present a summons against him while on duty and expressed his willingness to be taken to his home in a patrol car.” However, from her conversation with the immediate action operator, it appears that the 28-year-old wanted the patrol car to go outside her house, and that she was going in her boyfriend's car.
  8. Is it still true that two of the police officers working at Ajioi Anarkiro Police Station are employed by the Police Internal Affairs Department?
