In the testimony before the investigator into the case of the murder of 4-year-old Ani Borisova, which lasted almost three hours, her father Stanislav Bakardjiev said again that he was not responsible for her death.

His defender Panagiotis Chrisikakis stated before the media that according to his client, the child had died of natural causes or "of other causes that we cannot announce at present." The defender pointed out that most of the questions asked by the investigator were related to what had happened after Ani’s death. In response, Stanislav had said that he had only cut the body of the child, without committing the horrific acts described in the press. The fact that the flat where he lived had no stove but only a little fire-pot supports his claim.

At the same time, Chrisikakis declined to comment on whether Stanislav had told the investigator that his friend Nikolay had helped him annihilate the body. "He said he had cut the body but there are some details that I cannot voice in public. They were part of his testimony today. These details were not mentioned in his first testimony."

The defender said he could not answer the question as to whether he would request a cross-examination of Stanislav and Nikolay, as did his colleague who defends the child's mother Dimitrina Borisova. He refused to answer GRReporter's question as to whether the Bulgarian judicial authorities had been requested to assist in summoning Nikolay to testify.

He however specified that Stanislav remained firmly behind his original assertion that the mother Dimitrina Borisova was not aware of the child's death.

Earlier it became clear that the investigator had received an anonymous letter alleging that Ani might not have been killed but sold to an organ trafficking network or paedophiles. According to the defender, it is nothing more than an attempt to cause a fuss about the case that is terrifying anyway. "An example of such an action is the appearance of the bogus psychologist. There has already been an investigation into the assumptions described in this letter but I cannot give more details about it," was the reaction of Panagiotis Chrisikakis.

While the interrogation of Stanislav Bakardjiev was underway, his mother Ofelia arrived in court and told the media that after the investigator questioned her yesterday she received a call from Ani’s mother Dimitrina who is in custody in Eleonas women's prison near Thebes. Although Stanislav’s mother had previously described to journalists the exact conversation between them she refused to say the same things in front of the cameras.

Ofelia just said, "I saw him when they took him off to prison. I turned to the policemen, covered my mouth with my hand and told him that I love him very much and that I will be right next to him whatever happens. "

She did not have the opportunity get up close to her son as he was taken out from the back door of the court building. A solid police escort surrounded Stanislav Bakardjiev and took him to the police car that transported him back to Corfu prison.

Citizens in the court complex watched what was happening and some of them strongly reacted at the sight of the 27-year-old man who is the main suspect for the murder of his own child. Attacks and shouts of "Why did you do it" and "I hope you will rot in hell" could be heard as well as outspoken and rude cursing and swearing.
