Greek Professor Convicted of Sexually Abusing Three Students

ATHENS – To the cheering of women’s groups gathered outside a Thessaloniki court, a Professor of Obstetrics at the International Hellenic University (formerly the Alexander Technological Educational Institute) was convicted of sexually abusing three former students but won’t be jailed.

Despite the guilty finding, he wasn’t named in a report by Kathimerini after being given a four-year suspended sentence and released and has appealed the decision, the report added.

The incidents he was found guilty of occurred in 2015 and 2016 at his private practice, where it was found he sexually abused the three young women during a gynecological exam.

He also promised them professional advancement if they did not take action against him, it was reported but during his testimony he denied the allegations and said they were lies manufactured by two colleagues to get him.
