Aggeliki Nikolouli’s popular Greek TV show ‘Light in the Tunnel’ has joined the search to help police find one of Australia’s most wanted criminals, James Dalamangas.

Dalamangas has been wanted by police since April 1999 after allegedly murdering George Giannopoulos in Belmore, Sydney.

The case gained attention in Greece after the Australian Federal Police issued a global alert with a $200,000 reward for any information on Dalamangas’ whereabouts.

Australian authorities believe Dalamangas, now aged 53, is currently living in Greece and may be using different names including “James,” “Jim,” “Tim,” “Dimitrios,” “Dimitris,” “Mitsos,” “Takis” and “Kanis.”

He is described as being 1.82 metres tall, with brown eyes and hair, and a tattoo with Greek letters on his right arm.

James is one of Australia’s most wanted criminals.

The ‘Light in the Tunnel’ show visited the Greek village of Gorgomylos, where Dalamangas’ father comes from, and asked residents about the wanted man, but they said they had not seen or heard of anyone that could be him.

The Greek Herald journalist Panagiotis Dalatariof was also interviewed by Nikolouli during the show and commented on the sentiment within Australia’s Greek community at the time of the murders.

Australian authorities made a statement revealing the importance of finding Dalamangas.

“It is very important to find this man,” an Australian police officer said on the show.

“In Greece, this crime will soon be time-barred. We believe that someone there knows where Dalamangas is. We won’t stop until we find him. We urge the people of Greece to help us find him.”
