Child abuse charges dropped against SA seafood heir Panagiotis Toumazos


Panagiotis Toumazos, heir to the famous Fish Factory in South Australia, had multiple child sexual abuse allegations dismissed on Wednesday, May 17.

According to The Advertiser, Toumazos had been charged with allegedly making a child amenable to sexual activity, procuring a child for sexual activity and having sexual intercourse with a person under 14 in 2022.

SA Chief Magistrate Judge Mary-Louise Hribal dismissed the charges in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Wednesday, after no charge determination was made.

The 36-year-old, who is known as Yioti or Yotis, was facing his third charge determination date, after the prosecution failed to make one on the previous two occasions.

Mr Toumazos was granted bail on the charges in September 2022 – with his bail agreement now cancelled.

There is no suggestion either company or other family members were associated with the charges against Mr Toumazos.
