Families of children killed while para-sailing on Greek holiday call for swifter justice

[ad_1]

THE families of two children killed while para-sailing on holiday are calling for swifter justice.

They fear it could take years to bring a prosecution over the deaths of Jessica Hayes, 15, and cousin Michael Connelly, 13, in Rhodes in October.

Watersport boss Nikos Mallios, 51, is likely to face trial, Greek prosecutors have said. 

But Jessica’s dad Tony, of Corby, Northants, said: “Due to lockdowns and the slow legal system it could take years. I wish we could speed it up.”

The cousins fell 100ft when a rope tethering them to a boat driven by Mr Mallios snapped.

Michael’s brother, James, 15, was also being towed but survived.

Greek law forbids three people parasailing and 16 is the minimum age.
