The Beast of Kavos, a serial rapist, is back in prison, where he belongs.
A serial rapist has returned to prison after being released early from a prison sentence.
On Wednesday, Dimitris Aspiotis, also known as the Beast of Kavos, was sentenced to 24 years and six months in prison.
He was convicted in Greece in May 2020 after admitting to rape and assault causing GBH against a lady, as well as violating the terms of his previous release.
After the Albanian woman said he held her prisoner and raped her repeatedly, Aspiotis fled.
The Sunday Express traveled to Kavos, on the island of Corfu, in August 2019 after the Greek Ministry of Justice declined to confirm that Aspiotis had been released 43 years early due to a new law enacted to free up prison space.
The resort, which is popular with British school leavers and university students, was just getting ready for the summer season.
We found down Aspiotis in a bar where he drank, and he insisted that after getting a girlfriend and getting off drugs, he would never rape again.
Many locals and tourist employees, on the other hand, were outraged by the releases, claiming that they feared he would strike again.
Kayleigh Morgan, a 2010 British victim of Aspiotis, gave up her right to anonymity to testify of his heinous attack and warn that he was dangerous and would strike again.
“I am glad he is back in jail, but he should never have been let out in the first place,” she remarked yesterday. Another woman was harmed as a result of their blunder.
“I hope the Greek authorities have taken this lesson to heart.”
In 2012, Aspiotis was sentenced to 52 years in prison for a series of sex assaults on British visitors and travel agents, including Ms Morgan, in 2010. Ms Morgan and at least three other women were forced into the woods and raped at knifepoint.
The judge predicted that he would die in prison, and Greece was praised for imposing the world’s longest prison sentence.
However, under the new Paraskevopoulos Law, it was canceled. The law and Aspiotis’ release, according to Greek lawyer Ioannis Rigas, is a “humiliation for Greece.”
