Joanna Paliospirou was in Mykonos these days for a short excursion.
On her night out, the cameras captured her as she toured the picturesque alleys of the island, where she was smiling and in a good mood.
Also with her was Annita Nathanael, her actress and friend, who has supported her as she has spearheaded the effort to financially support Joanna Paliospirou to collect the money for rehabilitation treatments that cannot be done in Greece.

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.
