Shell companies in Panama have dominated the headlines in the past few weeks. But it seems there are also “shell” people, fake identities exempt from taxation and with no clear place of residence, yet able to enter into communication and transactions with Larisa police and state prosecutors, and to be named in official documents and to carry out other “business” in my case.
One such shell “person” appears to be Th. Vallianatou, a name which crops up on documents and notes of police and state prosecutors. Yet this person does not seem to exist as flesh and blood but to limited to some puzzling legal or paper construct, a fact, which turns out to be material to my appeal.
More of my draft on this very subject…
FAILURE TO FOLLOW UP ON THE WITNESS STATEMENT OF TH VALLIANATOU
Larisa deputy police commissioner Asterios Mantziokas ? instructed the police in Ajia to take a statement from Th. Vallianatou in relation to my case. (Evidence X )
Th. Vallianatou is named along with Theodekti and Theonike as one of the three witnesses who are asked to give statements that are not sworn at the police station.
There is, however, no sign of the witness statement of Th. Vallianatou and no explanation for its omission as there should be if state prosecutor Papaioannou had conducted an investigation in accordance with procedures.
Deputy police commissioner Asterios Mantziokas? also instructs the police at Ajia to find out the identity, name, address, and tax number of Th. Vallianatou. But there is no sign that the police have complied with these instructions.
Yet, police and state prosecutors clearly consider Th. Vallianatou to be an essential witness in my case because this person is one of only six witnesses asked to give a statement at Ajia police station along. Indeed, Th. Vallianatou is the focus of the investigation initiated by police officer Evangelas Toutounas in his handwritten note in July 2015. (Evidence X ) The importance of Th. Vallianatou is underlined by the fact that this was the name of the accused on the charge sheet shown to me by state prosecutor Christina Fasoula in February.
These facts show that, although completely unkown to me, Th. Vallianatou is clearly a central and pivotal figure in my case in the eyes of the police and state prosecutors.
In written questions submitted to state prosecutor Papaioannou on XX, I, therefore, asked her to tell me who Th. Vallianatou was, what was their full name and address (Evidence X ) and what they were accused of along with the question as to whether I was a party or a witness. As mentioned earlier, Papaioannou promised to tell me the answer to these questions in two months time.
But while State prosecutor Papaioannou is obliged to produce the witness statement of Th. Valliantou, as well as their name, address and tax number, she has failed to do so in breach of her duty to conduct a thorough investigation in accordance with procedures.
I submit that the reason why Papaioannou did not look into who the witness Th Vallianatou was and why Th Vallianatou did not make a statement witness statement to Ajia police is because Papaioannou knows Th Vallianatou does not exist. She knows Th Vallianatou is a “shell” or fake identity constructed by police and state prosecutors soley for the purpose of misdirecting the investigation to the advantage of Theodekti.
Th. Vallianatou seems, in fact, to have the characteristics of an “offshore” shell entity exempt from taxation and with no clear place of residence yet able to enter into communication and transactions with Larisa police and state prosecutors, to be named in official documents and to carry out other “business” in my case.
The construction of a fake entity Th Valliantou by police and state prosecutors for the purposes of perverting the course of justice is a substantial violation of procedure, and state prosecutor Papaioannou has been complicit in participating in this “offshore” holding by failing to seek to identify who they are or what statement they have to make as a witness in my case.
