The prose­cu­tor in the trial of the 2015 death of Van­ge­lis Gi­ak­oumakis in the north­west­ern city of Ioan­nina has rec­om­mended the ac­quit­tal of a for­mer di­rec­tor of the school where the stu­dent was study­ing and the head of the dorm where he was stay­ing, who were fac­ing charges of neg­li­gence, as well as Chris­tos Markoyian­nakis, a for­mer deputy min­is­ter who was ac­cused of try­ing to pro­tect the stu­dents who are al­leged to have beaten and bul­lied the 20-year-old. The for­mer school di­rec­tor and the dorm head were ac­cused of fail­ing to re­spond to re­ports that he was be­ing vic­tim­ized and that the abuse prompted him to take his own life. Markoyian­nakis, a New Democ­racy MP, ad­mit­ted that he did call the school di­rec­tor on be­half of the fam­ily of one of the stu­dents ac­cused of bul­ly­ing the vic­tim, but in­sisted that he did not try to use his in­flu­ence.
