Police are doing their job and they will catch them. I hope what my family and the family of my wife has been through will not happen to anyone again. We begged them. We told them where the money was.”

A reward of £260,000 has been put up by the Greek government for any information that will lead officials to catch the killers. Michalis Chrisochoidis, Public order minister, said “One rarely encounters such barbarity in Greece, in Greek society, even among criminals.”
