All defendants in Alkis Kampanos’ murder case found guilty


All 12 defendants who went to trial over the killing of 19-year-old Alkis Kampanos in Thessaloniki in February last year, were found guilty of murder by a mix jury court on Thursday.

According to, the jury found seven of the 12 youths guilty of manslaughter with possible intent – lowered from an initial charge of premeditated murder – and five guilty of complicity.

Kampanos was beaten and stabbed in the upper thigh and bled to death while two of his friends, aged 19 and 20, were injured in a deadly attack by a gang of youths on February 1, 2022.

Before the attack, the defendants had asked the three friends, who were sitting outside an apartment building in the Harilaou district, which football team they supported.

They were then attacked with knives, clubs, metal pipes, crowbars and a folding sickle – with murderous intent, the prosecutor’s report said.

The trial had begun in mid-January this year.
