The Courier Mail in Brisbane,
which has exposed military imposters before, followed
up on the story with an article in which Hatzifotis
attempted to correct his position. The article pointed
out that Hatzifotis had marched on previous Anzac Days
wearing medals, claiming that they were "Greek

On ANZAC Day 2000, he
was nowhere to be seen, despite quite a contingent of
newspaper and television reporters keen to meet him
in full regalia.
Investigations are continuing
and this matter remains on foot.
Anzac Day 2004
Kon was there again at the front of his Hellenic RSL Group.
Well he was when the march started but while they were forming
up he was in amongst his troops and each time a camera was
pointed at him he managed to turn his back to it so in typical
Veteran ambush style several Veterans moved to strategic spots
and each time he turned around at least one of them could take
a photo of him.
then time to step off and naturally Kon was out front leading
the Greek contingent with his beret and RAR badge, to which he
has an entitlement to wear, but it would seem that the Greek
Religious medal he claimed he was wearing back in the year
1999 had been miraculously turned into a Vietnam Medal and
Infantry Combat Badge. The very medal we claimed he
was wearing, but he denied and called a religious medal way
back then when he wanted to be a Redlands councillor.
We are probably being
a bit harsh on Kon as he obviously isn't really switched
on about his former minor time in the Army or
he would realise that the only real thing he was wearing
was a standard blue all corps beret with his RAR
badge on it and a National Service Medal.
It would seem that Kon is a con and he no doubt
knows that he is on these pages as he failed to appear at the
head of, or even in the ranks of the Hellenic RSL group in the

investigators thought that Kon had seen the errors of
his ways and did not pay him any attention on this
parade. We should have as he had slipped so far
down our pages he was right out of sight so out came the
medals again and Kon proudly led the Hellenic group
again as a Veteran with his medals on.
You may have thought
you got away with it Kon but a lot of people reported
you to the site so this year we were ready and we
snapped many photos of you and your bogus medals and
even made a movie of you. One of those photos can

can quite clearly see the Infantry Combat badge
incorrectly mounted on your bogus Viet Nam medal.
If you would like to view all the other photos then we
suggest you approach the Federal police as they will
have them in a few days time and will be hopefully paying you a
visit in the near future.
The fines and jail
terms have been increased Kon. Are you to be

system will do justice for impostors on behalf of
