He called them "losers" who were "not able to settle themselves." He said he and his immediate family had not been in contact with the boys in four years, since 2009. "It is atrocity. We're devastated, we're shocked," he said. "We're ashamed. They're children of my brother." Tsarni also called on his nephew to turn himself in.
