The mysterious death of an engineer
Costas Tsalikidis worked for the Greek branch of Vodafone for 11 years. From the beginning of his career, he was responsible for planning the architecture of the Company’s GSM, GPRS and UMTS networks. In February 2005, he allegedly handed in his resignation, but his employers persuaded him not to leave. On March 9, 2005, he was found dead in his apartment, with all the evidence pointing to suicide by hanging. His death coincided with the disclosure of the greatest phone hacking scandal in Greece, and probably also in Europe.
