Four More to Be Arrested for Sexual Exploitation of 12-Year-Old from Kolonos

November 3, 2022

ATHENS – The examining magistrate investigating the sexual abuse and exploitation of a 12-year-old girl from Kolonos on Thursday ordered the arrest of another four people as suspects in the case.

The magistrate and public prosecutor handling the case issued four new arrest warrants for the crime of paying to carry out a sexual act with a minor, based on additional testimony from the girl.

According to sources, three of the warrants are for people that have already voluntarily presented themselves to the police to clarify their involvement in the case. The girl’s testimony appears to contradict their claim that they never came into physical contact with the child, as she has identified them as men she had meetings with.

The new arrest warrants increase the defendants in the case to 10, including the child’s monther, of which six have been remanded in custody.

Following their arrest, the suspects will be led before the magistrate.
