The administrative inquiry completed today, Friday, March 6, mentioned that Vangelis Giakoumakis, the student who went missing on February 6 in Ioannina, northern Greece, was being continuously bullied by his peers. The inquiry conducted in the Dairy School of Ioannina where Giakoumakis used to study, resulted in several cruel and shocking incidents coming to light.
It was revealed that a group of students from Crete where always teasing and hazing Giakoumakis since his first year at the Dairy School. Actually, in March 2014, a faculty professor had even reported the fact.
For a little while things were better for the young student but, according to the report, the teasing and attacks started once again in January 2015, a few days before 20-year-old Giakoumakis went missing. Furthermore, the inquiry also found out that during that time, the “leader” of the Cretan group had returned to Ioannina to receive his diploma.
According to Greek media, Giakoumakis’ fellow student testified that he was being constantly bullied. They said that the group would tie him to a chair and then lock him in closets. Giakoumakis was so afraid of them that he wouldn’t even go to the bathroom at night.
Finally, the inquiry revealed that, according to witnesses, a politician had in fact been involved in the case. On Monday, the school board will have a meeting in order to make the necessary decisions.
