See videos and photos from the departure from AT – Why was the criminologist considered a suspected escapee

Time is now counting down for Apostle Lytra, who sees the prison door opening in front of him. The well-known criminologist arrived in Evelpidon shortly before 11 in the morning. At night, he was detained at the New Philadelphia Police Department in order to execute the warrant for his temporary detention, which was issued yesterday by the judicial authorities, replacing the restrictive conditions imposed on him after his apology for the brutal beating of the wife of Sophia Polyzogopoulos.

As it was decided, the defendant for the felony of grievous bodily harm against his wife violated the restrictive conditions that had been imposed on him before even 48 hours had passed since he was released from the investigative office with the obligation, however, not to have any kind of intercourse with Sofia Polyzogopoulou.

He was also obliged to move from the house where he lived in Gerakas with the 37-year-old lawyer and also to attend a special treatment program in order not to repeat his violent behavior. However, as judged by the judicial authorities, the 52-year-old defendant violated the conditions imposed on him in order to be released. Thus, they were replaced with a temporary detention order.

But what happened? The countdown to the issuance of a warrant against the lawyer began after a statement given to the police by Sofia Polyzogopoulou.

The 37-year-old woman who, according to her lawyer, Themi Sofos, received “30 punches from Apostolos Lytras” in her testimony stated that the defendant, despite imposing the condition of not having intercourse with her, last Monday at 12:34 in the afternoon ( that is, shortly after he left the investigative office and the restrictive conditions were imposed on him) he sent her text messages on her mobile phone with her blocking him. A day later on June 18, the 37-year-old was added by a lawyer – associate of Apostolos Lytras at their law firm in a Viber group chat, without her consent. “I am convinced” – Sofia Polyzogopoulou testified to the authorities – “that this had been done at the behest of my husband”.

According to the 37-year-old woman, the lawyer and her partner, before adding her to the group chat, had already called her several times wanting to convey, as she said, messages from her husband even though she herself had informed him that she did not want her the slightest contact with him. “In this conversation (s.s. on Viber) my husband sent messages saying that his children are trying to talk to me to come to the house to get money,” the lawyer said in her testimony, to add that all this took place while she had delivered clothes and a “bag of money” to the daughters of Apostolos Lytras and their associate immediately after the apology to Evelpidon was completed, which was done with the imposition of the above restrictive conditions.

The lawyer requested that the specific persons not go to her house at that time but a little later, because as she states in her testimony she is seriously injured, in a poor psychological state and according to the recommendations of the doctors she should continue to be hospitalized.

Her wish, however, was not listened to and as she notes in her testimony, the messages sent to her about the money were sent “intentionally” with intentions she does not know and in violation of the restraining order that had been imposed on the defendant for not associating with her. “Their purpose was to further terrorize me and burden her mental health,” says the 37-year-old about the specific messages, since as she points out, just the fact that the accused was trying to communicate with her caused terror and concern.

What followed is more or less well known. In the presence of her parents, the lawyer saw his ex-wife Lytra, his eldest daughter and their office partner at 10 last Tuesday night in the yard of the house in Gerakas. Mrs. Polyzogopoulou testified that only she and the defendant had keys to the house, which she never handed over to the investigating authorities, when she became aware of the provision of the restrictive condition of moving in.
