CAROLINE Crouch’s shameless killer husband claimed his wife was not keeping a secret diary.
Cops had previously revealed the 20-year-old Brit kept a secret coded diary to record the horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of her twisted husband Babis Anagnostopoulos.
Speaking from inside the so-called ”VIP” wing in Korydallos prison, Anagnostopoulos referred to the reports about his wife’s diary as ”unreliable” and was adamant Caroline was not keeping a journal.
He told Good Morning Greece: ” I consider the reports unreliable because everything that is being published is untrue.”
Sources have previously claimed that ”something terrible” had shocked the young mum and that she might have seen something she was not supposed to.
It is believed that the diary entries reveal disturbing details of the couple’s abusive marriage but Greek prosecutors have banned further publication of the secret diary, arguing that they could “offend the victim’s memory” and prejudice the trial.
The self-confessed killer went on by claiming he paid for Caroline’s funeral, even though the Crouch family lawyer had previously said Anagnostopoulos had asked Susan and David to pay for it.
Thanassis Haramanis, the lawyer for Caroline’s family, told The Sun: “This man has no shame.
“First he killed Caroline, then he asked her parents for money to pay for her coffin and to fly her body from Athens for the funeral.
“They gave him 4,000 euros. He paid nothing.”
”I have nothing to do with him, I didn’t know him, I have never been to his restaurant,” he said.
Cops are currently investigating a possible connection between Babis and ”close associate” Dogiakis, 53 who was found dead earlier this month.
Although his death was initially believed to be suicide, his close friends are now doubting it as he was found with gunshot wounds to the head and chest.
Babis concluded by saying that he is ”relieved” his one-year-old daughter Lydia has gone to Caroline’s parents.
”I know Caroline’s mum loves her granddaughter very much and will raise her properly,” he said.
Earlier this week Caroline’s parents were granted full custody of the little girl after Babis was stripped off his parental rights.
Yesterday Susan Dela Cuesta was more than happy to see her granddaughter in an emotional handover in Athens.
Mr Harmanis told The Sun Online: “Susan was happy yesterday. She will be able to see Caroline again in the eyes of Lydia.”
“In Athens she would be known as ‘the child of the murderer,’” he added.
“In Alonissos she would be the daughter of Caroline whose life was unjustly cut short.’”
Lydia will now be brought up on the island of Alonissos, where her mum was raised.
