Joanna Paliospirou

The last posts of Joanna Paliospirou on social media filled us with optimism because this woman, despite what she has gone through and continues to go through, not only refuses to give up, but makes new professional beginnings and enjoys life.

But a photo she recently uploaded reminds us that the medical battle is not just over yet, it has only just begun.

The image comes from the hospital and, as she explains in the caption: "One day you may be in a beautiful place with dear friends and the next in the icy bed of the operating room.

"Life is unpredictable ... sometimes unfair. It is important NOT to give up.

"Still here, I'm fighting…

"I thank my doctor and the hospital team for making me feel safe in their arms..."

Recently, after the bad weather, " Elpida " had uploaded a photo and a video from her game with the snow , by the sea, which she accompanied with the following text: " Kindness is like snow ίνει It beautifies everything that covers " . And surely she, after the terrible attack with vitriol that she received, has accepted the kindness generously and can continue, in a way, her life.

See the new post by Joanna Paliospirou:

37-year-old Efi Kakarantzoula was sentenced to 15 years in prison in October 2021 for the attempted murder of Joanna Paliospirou with acid in the Athens suburb of Kallithea in May 2020.

At the time, prosecutor Charalambos Mastrantonakis said the attacker executed her criminal plan “in a calculated manner. She had vile motives, murderous egoism and moral pettiness.”

He stressed that the type of acid that Kakarantzoula used and the way she executed her crime “leaves no doubt about her murderous intent.”

“The defendant did not want to ruin the face of Joanna [the victim], she ruined her life,” Mastrantonakis continued.

“When she threw the acid in her face, she accepted that it could be inhaled, swallowed, find its way to her trachea, and kill her,” he said, adding: “it was revenge that accepted the risk of death.”

Kakarantzoula claimed during the trial that she had no intent of killing Paliospirou.

She explained that stalked Paliospirou after suspecting her of dating a man with whom she had embarked on a sexual relationship in 2018.

She admitted to going to significant lengths to procure vitriol to the survivor’s place of work in an office building, saying she paid a man she met outside a shop in downtown Athens to get it for her.
