Joanna Paliospirou takes off her protective mask at the gym (PHOTOS)

5 months ago

Two years after being attacked with vitriol, Joanna Paliospirou took off the protective mask from her face.

The unfortunate woman, who was attacked in May 2020 while on her way to work, has returned stronger to her daily life and as her Instagram posts prove, she takes care of herself everyday by keeping in shape.

In fact, she posted some snapshots and videos on her personal account, which show her exercising, without wearing the protective mask.

However, Joanna has taken care to cover her face from her online friends, either by turning her back on the camera, or by putting her hands in front, in which she wears boxing gloves.

Her post is accompanied by the following caption: “The body achieves what the mind believes .. I talk to so many people these days… and we all feel the same. Do not get trapped in this feeling .. take care of your body, your mind and find the optimism and energy you need .. through ‘beautiful’ people and things you love. Take care of yourself.”

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.
