Greek ambassador was killed by wife's lover under her order, police say

Brazilian police investigating the murder of Greek ambassador to the country Kyriakos Amiridis have established the fact that the envoy was killed by his wife’s lover under her orders in a house in the Rio area.

“All our evidence suggests that her (Francoise) motivation was to use the financial resources left by the ambassador so she could enjoy life with Sergio,” police investigator Evaristo Pontes Magalhaes said.

A judge has ordered the detention of Francoise, her lover and his cousin.

The lover of the ambassador’s wife, Sergio Gomes Moreira Filho told police that he strangled the ambassador during a fight, but the blood evidence found on the scene makes his claim unlikely, Magalhaes said.

Neighbors said they did not hear any shots, leading police to believe the policeman stabbed Amiridis.

Police believe a body found in a burned-out car that Amiridis had rented on Dec. 21 belongs to the ambassador, but forensics experts are still working to confirm that it is him.
