Annita Nathaniel spoke about Joanna Paliospirou's last surgery, but also about the comment she made on Twitter regarding Christos Dantis' relationship with the Survivor contestant on the blue team, Asimina Hatziandreou.
Regarding Joanna Paliospirou, she said: "Joanna's last surgery did not go well. Joanna is a fighter and she will overcome that as well."
Regarding her comment on Twitter, about the relationship between Christos Dantis and the Survivor contestant, she wrote that a relationship with such an age difference should not be advertised.
Asked about this, Annita Nathaniel said: "I do not want to comment on the incident further. At the time, I may have misinterpreted this on a social media site. I did it thinking like a mother. We are in a free society and everyone can do what they feel and want in their personal life," and added: "I would tell my daughter to do what you want but do not promote the one who in any case is your choice."
The young woman has so far performed nine surgeries and the other day she completed her tenth.
She herself had mentioned in a post: "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 fight it .. I thank my doctor and the hospital team for making me feel safe in their arms."
A few days ago, Joanna Paliospirou celebrated her birthday and wanted to thank her online friends for their wishes on Instagram and at the same time send her own message.
More specifically, she posted a photo from inside the hospital and accompanied it, writing: "Birthday from my second home for me today. Thank you all very much for your wishes."
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.
