In order to offend the personality of the Deputy PM Adonis Georgiades, the documentary journalist and publisher Kostas Vaxevanis was convicted by the decision of the Athens Multi-Member Court of First Instance under the number 3768/2018.In particular, the court upheld Mr Georgiadis’s lawsuit, which was handed to Thano Plevris by lawyer, and imposed on Costas Vaxevanis a fine of 5,000 euros for insulting Adonis Georgiadis’ personality on the case of Dynan.
It is noted that the journalist had claimed that Adonis Georgiadis had been «business» in Dynan for 14 consecutive years, even when he was Minister.
The Court found that what was mentioned was false as the company that traded with Dynan was not Adonis Georgiadis but his brother Leonidas Georgiades and there was only one transaction for the purchase of calendars in 2008 and no one else and hence never became » business «and much more did not happen for 14 consecutive years and when Adonis Georgiades was Minister.
Interestingly enough, the Court has accepted, apart from the fact that it is all false, that for the part concerning Adonis Georgiades, Bacchev was aware of the falsehood and made the false publication and thus committed the offense of slanderous defamation, and for the rest of the leg that it was intended to exterminate and challenge the personality of Adonis Georgiades.
Indeed, Ad. Georgiadis, commenting on the court’s ruling, argued in social media, among other things: «… when @KostasVaxevanis spoke» tell me a decision that I condemned? «Now you will know one … (there will be others). I lie, and I slander against what he wrote against me. «
