"Paniliakos" veteran footballer Thodoris Armilagos, the 66-year-old father of a police officer convicted of murder, a 47-year-old woman, notary, and another 42-year-old man reported missing are the main members of a criminal group that carried out frauds and forgeries to drain the bank accounts of deceased people.

As is clear from the investigation conducted by the property rights department of the police in Attica, the perpetrators forged various documents (certificates, powers of attorney, etc.) of deceased people who, while still living, possessed bank accounts with large sums of money in order to drain them.

The detainee was a teammate of Predrag Djordjevic and Stelios Giannakopoulos in "Paniliakos"

In particular, the investigation, which followed a warning, established that, on 25 September, one of the detainees, aged 66 years, accompanied by his 42-year-old accomplice had been to a bank branch and, presenting a forged power of attorney by two people who died in July 2014, tried to withdraw 160,000 euro from a bank account that belonged to the two "principals".

At noon on 7 October, the same person went back to the bank branch and received a cheque for 50,000 euro. The authorities apprehended him after the operation, and the 42-year-old man who waited outside the bank and the 47-year-old notary a little later.

The authorities found on the detainees, and at the house of the 42-year-old man, a cheque for 50,000 euro and a sale contract for real estate worth 70,000 euro of questionable authenticity and confiscated them.

The 47-year-old woman is subject to restrictive measures, namely to appear at the police station in Syntagma Square, for similar crimes (issuing a false certificate and forging documents, thus causing damage amounting to more than 120,000 euro) whereas the 42-year-old man is arrested for fraud.

The detainees were sent to the prosecutor in Athens as well as the case file compiled against them for organizing, and participating in, a criminal organization, fraud and direct complicity in it, document forgery and violations of the laws on data protection and on the filing of an affidavit.
