The official information from the Fire Brigade at 18.10 was that the fire was directed towards Dioni, that is, contrary to the direction it finally took, Attica Regional Councilor Ioanna Tsoupra noted in her testimony to prosecutor V. Gnesouli.
"A discussion took place at 18.10 with Mr. Chionis and no one informed us. We just saw a fire from above. The information we had is that he is going to Dioni. On the opposite side. "
Organized precautionary evacuation of citizens was never ordered
According to information, Ms. Tsoupra claimed that "It is a different thing to evacuate the type of unruly escape and another thing is the organized preventive evacuation of citizens. The latter never happened. The fire brigade must make a suggestion to the mayor. The fire brigade had to tell itself to evacuate, because now we are talking about a level of rescue that only she does. The Municipality and the Region intervene only when there is no fire in the specific area. "Otherwise he cannot intervene according to the law."
