Folli Follie Trial: “I couldn’t even finish my sentence,” said George Koutsolioutsos

‘ In Folli I couldn’t even finish my sentence,” he said, apologizing to the Trimel Appeal Court today Wednesday (3.4.24), for the case of her falsified balance sheets, adding that he did not see himself continue in the future in the brand. The son of the founders of the company at the beginning of his apology explained that his father had the first and final word in the company. “That I didn’t sound troubled me. I had ideas and wanted to offer. In 1997 the company was admitted to the stock market. This brought to light what the company had achieved by then. Within this context and while everyone in Greece knew us there was a proposal to privatise duty-free shops,” the defendant said. He then referred to the duty-free stores on the Board of Directors of which he participated. “I joined the board and began to channel all my energy there. To be at the airport you have to be a known brand. Travellers are international. This work brought us into contact with large foreign houses,” explained the defendant whose apology will continue tomorrow. Earlier, Dimitris Koutsolioutsos, completing his apology, said: “It weighs on me that there has been a partnership between PcW – and that is why checks were not done correctly – with the new management of the company and the tolerance of the Capital Market Commission. My mind’s been there all this time. Why have five years sold everything and continues a lie to this day?”. “I am so sad…. Normally, I should be in a depression facility, but I’m gonna fight it to restore people… That’s what I wanted to say because it’s inside me,” he concluded.
