  1. Oooer! I lived in Kato Korakiana for years. I’ll have to get the low-down from one of the locals.

  2. The age-old love triangle it would seem. Pakistani chap pissed off because his girlfriend was seeing an English guy, so stabbed him. Same old same old.

  3. I’m not sure – my friend was more interested in telling me when his restaurant will be opening for the summer! 🙂 But I’d guess that as they know who it is, he will no doubt be having cosy little chats with the local astinomia, and will probably end up in court soon.
