Serial rapist confronted by This Morning as brave victim speaks to warn others
A serial rapist dubbed The Beast Of Kavos was confronted on This Morning after he was released back onto the streets of Greece – and is now ‘being protected’ by locals.
Dimitris Aspiotis is now working in a bar in a popular strip for tourists, after completing just seven years of his 52-year sentence for rape, robbery and assault on seven women.
In a 46-day rampage in 2010, after already being arrested, convicted and released for three previous rapes, Aspiotis raped four more women, being slapped with the 52 year sentence as a result.
Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield sat horrified as one of his victims, Kayleigh Morgan, bravely waived her anonymity to talk to them about being raped repeatedly a knife point after Aspiotis dragged her into the woods and smashed up her phone.
She was only released when locals realised he was missing, and contacted him to let her go under the assumption he was raping someone.
But just seven years, later, he is back in the same area in which he made the attacks, continuing to be known around the area and working as usual.
Due to Greek law, they are not allegedly not allowed to turn his custom away from the bars, leaving business owners ‘powerless’ against him.
Flying someone over to the holiday resort, This Morning’s producers confronted Aspiotis head on, finding him at the bar he works at.
Eventually, they managed to catch him on camera, and the man viciously swiped the camera away before running into the staff area of the bar as producer David requested an apology or remorse for what he did.
He refused to comment on anything said by the team.
The British Embassy in Athens, the British Consulate in Korfu and local authorities in Kavos all refused to comment to This Morning.
‘Don’t. Don’t do it. He’s been released under this new law. They’re bothered about their tourism, or they claim that they’re bothered about their tourism, but how can they be when they let a rapist on the loose again to attack more women?,’ Kayleigh warned about heading to the island.
‘A notorious rapist and the locals are protecting him. So if you go on holiday there, if anything happens to you.
‘The locals don’t have your back, the government doesn’t have your back. the police don’t have your back.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
