The father of 17-year-old Nicoletta, who was found dead in her house in the western Athens neighbourhood of Peristeri, is asking for an exemplary punishment of the murderer of his daughter, believed to be a 30-year-old Pakistani - the death penalty.
At the same time, her younger sister, who was the first to find her dead, is devastated and cannot believe that she will never see her again.
“My child is not coming back, but whoever did this to her I want the death penalty. I want his people to cry, like we are crying today," the father of young Nicoletta told Star.
He is convinced that the perpetrator of his daughter's murder is her 30-year-old Pakistani boyfriend, named Sani, who has disappeared and has not yet been found by the police, despite reports that he was preparing to surrender.
"He had keys to the house, so since no signs of break-in were found and her mother and sister were not home, I believe he did it and when he is found he will be dealt with according to the law," the 17-year-old's father continued.
"She told me she was having a good time and was happy"
Speaking to Proto Thema, the 17-year-old's father explained that he did not realise that his daughter was experiencing difficulties with her partner, but he emphasises that he had objections to the relationship from the beginning.
"I had seen him once. He hadn't left an impression on me because I had told her to stop anyway. Both from this particular person and from these type of people in general", said Mr. Karolidis.
At the same time, he noted that recently, every time he communicated with Nicoletta by phone, she sounded happy.
"We talked a week ago. We don't talk all the time because I live far away but she hadn't said anything to me nor had I noticed anything. She told me that she is having a good time and is happy. Her mother, who lives with her every day, will know better what the child was hiding," he said.
He himself is waiting for the arrest of the murderer of his 17-year-old daughter, so that he can feel vindicated. So far, however, he has not been informed by the police about the progress of the investigations to identify the 30-year-old perpetrator.
For her part, the mother of Nicoletta is asking for the murderer of her child to be punished.
"My child was an angel, that's what you write. May the murderer of my child be punished," said the mother of the deceased girl in her message.
Nicoletta's mother was the one who realised on Monday afternoon that something was wrong with her child and kept calling her on her cell phone without getting an answer.
Shortly after 8:00 p.m., her partner and her daughter opened the door of the apartment on Arachovis Street in Peristeri and saw the 17-year-old dead with bruises on her hands and her pajama top half down.
Just hours before, the victim had fought to stay alive but the alleged assailant, her 30-year-old Pakistani partner, was covering her mouth to suffocate her.
The autopsy results found that the Pakistani allegedly used his hands to suffocate his 17-year-old girlfriend.
With his left hand, he allegedly pressed her nose and head, and left marks, bruises and small abrasions on her face. With his right hand he closed her mouth, probably using some small cloth.
According to a report by the Free Press, police have so far detected dozens of threatening messages on Nicoletta's mobile phone from the Pakistani man, however, the most detailed investigation by the officers of the Criminal Investigation Department is not yet released.
The 17-year-old's father also revealed what happened a few years ago his daughter and son, and they are shocking.
"I sit and look at pictures and I keep crying. A month ago we were having a good time, I had her in my arms," he said to ANT 1. "My child can't be brought back by anyone."
He then revealed that the 17-year-old and his eldest son, when they were 11 and 8 years old respectively, were victims of systematic neglect in Makrohori, where they grew up, by three men who were subsequently sentenced to many years in prison.
"There were trials, they were sentenced, one 53 years, the other 16-17 years. At school they made fun of her, she was bullied. She was trying to survive, not to think about it", said the father, among other things.
He added that Nicoletta left for Athens so that she could "enjoy her life, take it from the beginning again, as much as she could enjoy her life, and chase away her pain."
"Finally, here it is, what happened. She thought that her relationship will be very good and here is the result," the father said.
