Joanna Paliospirou and Annita Nathanail were at the Dog Adoption Festival organised by the "AGAPI" association in Zappeion last Saturday.
Specifically, the event was presented by Annita Nathanail and Kostas Sommer, while the music was curated by Maggi Charalambidou. At Nathanael's side was of course Joanna Paliospirou, who made a very summery appearance wearing a hat and a floral dress in shades of blue.
Annita Nathaniel spoke to Mega about Joanna Paliospirou, where she stated:
"She feels great and it is a big thank you that we have to give to the people who hugged her and accepted her, who consider her image normal.
"We are this society that has the tolerance to embrace those in need.
"It is true that her last surgery did not go well. We have patience and perseverance.
"Joanna is an admirable being. She inspires many people everyday, not just women.
"I believe in her, I believe that she can do everything."
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.
