The lawyer for businessman Adam Catzavelos, who became a household name after a video of him casually using the k-word while on holiday in Greece went viral, has revealed that he is also facing charges – the details of which are not yet known – in the country in which the incident occurred.

Lawley Shein said Greek authorities had issued Catzavelos with a summons and they were awaiting a translation of the document so they could understand what they were attempting to prosecute him for. Shein also highlighted problems with the jurisdiction of the case, as it happened outside South African borders.

Whether he can therefore successfully be prosecuted in South Africa remains to be seen.
