The fear of the statute of limitations for the crimes of sexual abuse in the field of theater accelerates the prosecutor’s investigation. In the face of the risk of perpetrators of sexual violence going unpunished with prominent actors of the theater and television, despite the serious allegations against them, the Prosecutor’s Office is rushing to investigate them so that any criminal acts committed are not lost.
Thus, a well-known actor from a TV series who has been reported for rape in 2006 has come into focus. The shocking description of the young actor Dim. Flowers for his rape by the former “student” of Dim. Lignadis is currently under the microscope of the investigation which is completed in the next 24 hours by the Security. Once this case returns to the hands of the prosecutors, the next step is estimated to be criminal prosecution, without ruling out the possibility that the “model” Lignadis will be followed in his case. That is, an arrest warrant should be issued against him if it is judged that the conditions provided by law are met.
What is certain is that the complaints are confirmed by the testimonies, removing any doubt or reservation that could be created about them. The evidence that reaches Justice is cataclysmic. The names of the new witnesses who reinforce the descriptions of the victims come daily to strengthen the “arsenal” of Justice.
Even the 40-year-old woman who until 2017 was in the close circle of Dim. Lignadi, testifying with extreme secrecy to the prosecutors, presented unknown aspects of his dark action, giving additional information to the prosecutors about what was happening for a number of years. In her testimony, she allegedly referred to frequent visits of minors to the house of Dimitris Lignadis, claiming that when in 2016 he realized that something was happening and told him that he would report him to the police, he replied: “If you dare to speak, I will take the gun and I will blow your mind in the air “.
The testimony of the president of the Association of Greek Actors, Spyros Bibilas, is estimated to further open the investigation, presenting the complaints that have reached his hands recently about what is happening in the art world.
In the morning, Irini Agapidaki, Special Secretary for the Protection of Unaccompanied Minors of the Ministry of Immigration, submitted a memorandum to the Prosecutor’s Office requesting that the complaints that came to light be investigated and, according to them, concern the period 2017-18.
