The evidence we have so far, seemed suicidal, ” he said and continued ” We knew the violence of his fellow students against him, which is confirmed by relevant testimonies of students. The prosecution for personal injuries brought by the Prosecutor relates to specific individuals and we know who they are. Some students are from Crete, one from Grevena and others who have graduated from the Dairy School and left Ioannina. Maybe the Prosecutor wants to finally make sure that it is not a murder and remitted the case to the investigating judge for deeper investigation. ”
