Recently, I published a post about the Zahopoulos scandal that has been in top news stories in Greece for the last month. It was intended to be an analysis about the case, with some information over some of its key participants (Zahopoulos, Evi Tsekou, Prime Minister Mr.Karamanlis and his wife Natasa Karamanli and others)
If you are not aware of the case, it involves a DVD in which Zahopoulos is supposed to reveal secrets to Mrs. Evi Tsekou, during their private moments, that are of great political significance. From the moment this was revealed, a large portion of Greek journalists, public but also Greek intelligence agencies have embarked on a safari for the discovery of the precious content.
Now, the site has been receiving massive traffic, originating primarily from search engines that respond to queries like 'zahopoulos dvd', 'zahopoulos tsekou original dvd' and so on.
I have also received some 'weird' e-mails and I want to make clear to all officials and un-officials that I am not aware of the DVD's location or possible download sites of course. The hype escalated when, yesterday, a video circulated in the net, now is on Youtube and countless 'low-profile' sites (blogs etc.), that supposedly is a part of the DVD content. You can find this video here.This video was top story in all Greek media and all kind of 'experts' took turns in expressing their 'prestigious opinions'.
However, once again, their information was absolute nonsense. It is obvious that this video is a fake. This is such an amateur work that the creator records his PC screen that most probably runs some kind of movie maker software (the DVD content was created by using a still hidden camera). It is also fake for a thousand more reasons for which I will not bother writing. So, from this place I would recommend to anybody to simply 'calm down'.
After all, the 'tampered' DVD (not the original) will be released to the public in February 8th by the official interrogator that is in charge of the case. So, let's have patience and focus on the important things here.
* Who has the original DVD?
* What is its content?
* What was so important that led a powerful political man, like Zahopoulos, to commit suicide? Was it of economical or political nature? Or both?
We are patiently waiting for the justice to arrive at conclusions. From my point, I can only publish my own thoughts and the information I gather in a most-neutral way possible. I intend to keep on ignoring the darkness in my mail inbox and willing to express my opinions freely.
