Joanna Paliospirou, the woman who became the symbol of strength and bravery with the fight she gives after the horrible attack with vitriol she suffered from Efi Kakaranzoula, will appear for the first time without her mask.
Paliospyrou will be invited next Thursday on air with Stavros Theodorakis to appear in front of the public without the special mask she must wear, and with which she appeared in court a while ago.
In the trailer of the show we see Paliospirou talking to the journalist.
Some time ago, she answered questions from her followers about when she will take off the special mask.
"It will be done soon, because I need to share my new image. It is a necessary step in the process of accepting myself and to feel that my life is moving forward. "I feel scared, but I will face it," she said.
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.
