They judged that the 36-year-old sought to kill the unfortunate girl, something that did not happen thanks to the timely intervention of doctors - this legal judgment of the judges, however, should also be confirmed at trial, by the decision of the three judges and the four jurors of the MOD.
Ioanna has publicly stated that she will give the "present" in court - so, It is very likely that today will be the first meeting of the two women after the morning of the shocking attack.

"I accept the crime of bodily harm. I have spent all the years of my adult life without delinquent behavior. This attitude of mine proved that my upbringing and the structure of my personality prevail.. By no means am I unrepentant and painless, and for this reason, in my apology today, I want to sincerely and humbly apologize for the harm and sorrow I have caused to her and her family. ".

It was the drop that overflowed the glass and made me see things from a different angle. I do not want to develop it further until the case reaches the audience and all the truth is told. ".
