Cre­tan feud.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A 25-year-old man from Crete sus­pected of shoot­ing a 24-year-old in a fam­ily feud will be trans­ferred to At­tica’s Ko­ry­dal­los Prison for se­cu­rity rea­sons af­ter fac­ing a pros­e­cu­tor in Ha­nia yesterday. The gun­man was brought to court at 7 a.m. amid fears of reprisals from the vic­tim’s fam­ily. The shoot­ing ap­pears to be linked to a 2011 in­ci­dent when the vic­tim’s fa­ther killed the gun­man’s fa­ther. The 25-year-old’s lawyer, Gior­gos Per­rakis, de­nied that his client in­tended to kill the vic­tim, who is still in an in­duced coma. He also called on both fam­i­lies to try to en­sure that there is no es­ca­la­tion of vi­o­lence as part of the vendetta. Doc­tors have started to re­duce the med­i­ca­tion that kept the 24-year-old in a coma and in­tend to bring him out of this state over the next few days.
