The son of a fashion tycoon gunned down in a notorious murder in The Bishops Avenue has appeared in court charged with drunkenly groping three of his female employees.

Financier Anthony Constantinou, 33, head of financial group Capital World Markets (CWM), is said to have carried out the attacks in the company’s 21st floor office in Heron Tower, the City’s biggest skyscraper, in separate incidents in October 2014 and February this year.

Constantinou, of Wildwood Road, Hampstead Garden Suburb, appeared at the Old Bailey yesterday accused of groping one woman in a stock room, forcibly kissing another employee, and sexually assaulting a third woman by kissing her and grabbing her breasts.

He was just three when his father Aristos, a millionaire fashion tycoon, was murdered in his mansion in The Bishops Avenue in 1985.

The unsolved case was dubbed the “silver bullets murder” due to the six nickel-jacketed bullets that ended Aristos’s rags-to-riches-life.

He was shot six times at close range, including one fired into each temple, shortly after returning home to his seven-bedroom home with his wife Elena, 14 years his junior, after a New Year’s Eve party.

Constantinou, the youngest of his father’s three sons, has been photographed socialising with Princess Beatrice and showing Princess Anne around his company premises.

CWM were sponsors of Chelsea FC and became an official partner of the club at the start of the year.

He faces five charges of sexual assault but entered no pleas to any of the charges and was bailed to appear again for a plea and case management hearing on September 14.

A trial date has been set for January 4 next year.
