Greek-Australian Dimitrios Mavris Found Dead in Cell

May 31, 2018

SYDNEY – A Greek-Australian man accused of smuggling 60 kilograms of cocaine was found dead in his cell, according to ABC (Australian Broadcasting Company) which reported that “Dimitrios Mavris was being held at Surry Hills police station after being arrested at Sydney Airport last Wednesday, accused of hiding $20 million of cocaine in frozen fish.”

He was found dead last week in a Corrective Services cell at the station, less than 48 hours after being arrested.

Police are not treating his death as suspicious, however his lawyer, Sam Chamas, told the ABC his wife and children were devastated and Mr. Mavris had no previous criminal record.

“I don’t understand how this could happen,” he said. “I visited my client on Friday morning and he was in good spirits.”

Chamas said Marvis was “feeling good” about the bail application that was due to be made in Sydney Local Court this morning.
