Greek police are focusing on the testimony of two witnesses to shed light on the murder of journalist George Karaivaz. The latter was found dead yesterday near his apartment in Alimos, where he was executed with 6 bullets. Investigators in Greece are reportedly also looking at cameras at the scene.
Also, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has asked the Minister of Civil Defense, Michalis Chrysochoidis, to launch a quick investigation into the matter. In connection with the event that shook Athens yesterday, a meeting is expected at the Maximos Palace, between the head of government and the minister in question.
Security cameras and road traffic monitoring cameras can help security officers build the path that the killers have taken. The victim's computers and cell phones are also being monitored to see his recent conversations and whether he has received threatening messages.
It is suspected that the killers have been monitoring the deceased journalist for days, revealing his movements. The journalist did not confess to any of his relatives or colleagues that he had received threats or that his life was endangered, nor did he carry a weapon and did not seek police protection.
Police are paying special attention to the four testimonies, two of which are considered very important, as these persons were very close to the execution and saw the murder scene. According to preliminary reports, the reporter of the black chronicle Jorgos Karaivaz, was shot with 6 bullets in the body while he was returning home from work, around 14:00. 12 cartridges suspected to have been emptied from a silenced gun were found at the scene.
The two key witnesses said the perpetrators were riding a small motorcycle, presumably a scooter, with which they fled, leaving the reporter dead next to his car.
The murder was also condemned by the European Commissioner and the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights. "The killing of a journalist is an act of contempt and cowardice," Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen wrote on Friday.
