Boss of parasailing firm facing probe over death of two Brit teens STILL taking tourists on thrill seeking trips

A BOSS of a parasailing firm facing a probe over the death of two Brit teens is STILL taking tourists on thrill seeking trips, it was claimed.

Nikos Mallios, 53, was reportedly spotted ferrying boatloads of tourists out to sea despite being at the centre of an investigation that’s now being looked over by Greek prosecutors.

Mallios was picking up holidaymakers from the exact same spot he collected cousins Jesscia Hayes, 15, and Michael “Mikey” Connelly, 13, before they plunged to their deaths almost two years ago, the Mirror reports.

Mallios was seen in shades and a faded T-shirt driving his neon yellow speedboat near the Lindos Princess Beach Hotel and allegedly charged customer €75 a trip.

At the end of his shift, the 53-year-old was seen driving off in his Mitsubishi 4X4 to a hill-top home in a nearby village.

It comes as legal sources told the Mirror cops had finished their probe into watersports exec and had delivered a dossier of evidence to prosecutors.

They claimed a decision about charges was expected “very soon” after delays caused by Covid.

When the publication approached Mallios, he said: “I don’t want to talk to anybody about this. I’m sorry I don’t want to talk about it.

“I can talk to the families, but not to anybody. I don’t want to talk about it.”

Jessica and Michael’s family claim Mallios broke as many as six safety laws – including strapping three under-14s into the cramp boat and operating in bad weather outside a designated zone – that led to their deaths.

Jessica’s dad, Tony, 40, said: “I’m so angry. It’s been nearly two years. No one seems to care that two children died. It ruined our lives.

“We want the case to be heard and for him to face justice.”

Mallios was not subject to bail restrictions, meaning he has continued to work and live freely.

Tony said: “Our children are lost, our lives have been ruined. But Mallios is continuing.

“People should be aware of the investigation and ongoing legal case.”

George Moschos, who is representing Jessica’s family in Greece, said: “The case file is now complete and in the hands of the prosecutor. Until then Mr Mallios has not been detained.”

In November 2020, the parasailing firm was still taking bookings and boasted of “new extra comfort and safety”.

Jessica and Michael both fell from an “extremely high” altitude in a holiday horror plunge on Rhodes in October 2020.

Michael’s twin brother James, who was also strapped in for the three-man ride, was left fighting for his life but has since been flown back to the UK.

The company they used, Waterport Lindos, allegedly violated sea sport regulations by allowing three people to parasail in tandem at once.

A rope attaching their parachute to a speedboat snapped in “extremely bad” weather conditions off the fishing village of Lindos.
