New evidence has emerged in the investigation into the murder of AEK F.C. fan Michalis Katsouris during clashes with Croatian football hooligans in Athens last August, police sources revealed on Monday.
Citing the police sources, state-run news agency amna reported that the DNA of a 35-year-old Greek football supporter has been found on one of the knives police collected from the scene of the deadly attack, that also had traces of the victim’s blood on it.
The 35-year-old has been detained and questioned on the issue. In his testimony last Friday, he claimed he had a knife on him when the clashes started and that he lost it during the turmoil.
The 35-year-old was arrested and is already in Nafplion prison serving an earlier outstanding prison sentence of 12 months and a fine for his involvement in previous incidents of football fan violence in the town of Volos.
He is to be examined by the authorities again in the next few days in order to determine whether he was involved in the deadly injury of the 29-year-old victim, Michalis Katsouris.
