Two brothers found guilty of killing Greek-Australian John Macris

Two Bulgarian nationals, Yuliyanov J Raychev Serafim and Milen Rayche have been found guilty of murdering businessman John Macris.

The Greek-Australian businessman was murdered outside his home in Voula on October 31st, 2018, as he was walking towards his car to attend a launch of his new security business.

In April 2019, police arrested and charged a Bulgarian man over the suspected contract killing of the 46-year-old.

The second man accused of murdering John Macris, was extradited to Greece in August 2019. He is the brother of the 31-year-old Bulgarian man who was arrested in April 2019.

The Bulgarian brothers said they came to Greece in October 2018 for a holiday.

They both deny the charges, claiming they had no motive.

Greek authorities have linked the hit to a Canadian branch of the Outlaws motorcycle club. Serafim is believed to have links to Australian crime figures living in Canada.

The brothers will be sentenced later on today. They could face up to 15 years to life in prison.
