In his testimony of April 6, 2011 Ahileas Beos has presented a very different version of events. "I called Mr. Daloukas and told him, "You will be a referee in an important match. Rule for your career and family. There is nothing to be afraid, do not forget that things have changed and they are not as before." However, immediately afterwards the former boss added, "Mr. Daloukas’ ruling was disgustful to all who watched the match" and admits that he called the referee after the match and swore at him.

While outstanding football functionaries are playing with justice in Greece, the President of UEFA Michel Platini called for the adoption of stricter laws to eliminate corruption and criminal networks that fix matches. In his speech to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, he described match fixing as the greatest danger for European football and said he would do anything possible to stop this.

"Few countries have strict laws on match fixing and it is very important the other countries to follow them," he said and gave as examples the UK, Spain, Portugal and Italy. "Everyone should understand that European football is in danger and I could say that the same applies to other sports. Match fixing is connected with betting on the Internet. Criminal organizations are behind all this and no country should feel secure if it does not take serious measures against this phenomenon," said Michel Platini.
