IN MEMORY OF OUR CHILD

It is an indisputable fact that our child died.

It is an indisputable fact that a month ago he was beaten by the MAT [1] wildly and dangerously for his physical health.

The scene of the beating is in a video that everyone saw.

The fact (not proven by forensic medicine) is that after the beating, but also the humiliations he suffered in detention, his mental health collapsed, which fatally influenced the decisions for his life.

The fact is that in our country no one from the government, not even a prosecutor from the state, ordered a sworn administrative examination for the above.

The fact is that in our country the democratic institutions do not work.

The fact is that our society is not fair.

The fact is that our son, Vassilios Maggos, tried to make it better with his struggles!”
