Dim­itris Melachrinopou­los, who was with Fys­sas on the fa­tal night in Septem­ber 2013, told the court how a group of as­sailants sur­rounded his friend. “It was like they formed a cir­cle around him, mak­ing room for Roupakias,” he said, re­fer­ring to Fys­sas’s killer Gior­gos Roupakias. Later that night, at the lo­cal po­lice precinct, Melachrinopou­los iden­ti­fied Roupakias as the killer. “He was com­pletely pas­sive, as if noth­ing had hap­pened,” he said. The wit­ness said he re­ceived anony­mous tele­phone calls af­ter the mur­der from some­one warn­ing him “you’ll be next.”
