Family of Limassol triple murder victims have reported Marianta Georgiou – the woman largely named as the main cause behind the violent incident – to police claiming she has insulted the memory of the deceased through “provocative” Facebook posts, it emerged on Tuesday.
In November, Christos Thoma, who was in a relationship with Georgiou, stabbed brothers Constantinos and Paraschos Ntorzis, aged 21 and 19, as well as their friend Aimilios Miltiadous, 24, who was engaged to their cousin.
The fight was apparently over Georgiou, who had been messaging Constantinos while in a relationship and telling him her boyfriend was physically abusing her, sending him pictures of herself bruised – injuries she claimed came from Thoma but telling Constantinos to stay away from her.
Surviving brother Giannos Ntorzis, it emerged on Tuesday, posted on Facebook he had reported her to police after “provocative” posts she put online.
Screenshots show she posted a link to a video about the incident called ‘triple murder over the eyes of a woman’ and her comment saying “when you were acting tough it was alright now suck on it”.
Other posts included “murders don’t happen without reason, there’s no smoke without fire” and “there were lots of murders in Cyprus, and you care, I don’t!!! Curiosity kills. When they were acting tough they were good, enough.
“It’s been six months I’ve lasted, enough, how much more are you going to say, you keep provoking me, you’ve said a lot without knowing me, you’ve left a lot of innuendos about me – enough.”
A picture of Georgiou with the caption “I came down to earth to blacken the lives of some people” was shared by Ntorzis, where he said he had gone to police and was told to submit his complaint online.
“Our ‘law’ allows her to uninterruptedly mock the dead,” Ntorzis wrote.
Someone found guilty of malice or slandering a dead person’s memory can be punished by up to a year in prison. The complaint must be filed by a close relative.
