New Democracy Former MP Convicted of Paying Minors for Sex

February 27, 2019

ATHENS – Former New Democracy lawmaker Nikos Georgiadis, convicted of paying minors in the Romanian region of Moldavia for sex, was given only a 28-month suspended sentence by a Greek court and ordered to pay a 20,000-euro ($22,789) fine but won’t go to jail.

The three-member court voted 2-1 in favor of his conviction with no mitigating circumstances although the office of Prime Minister and Radical Left SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said Georgiadis was backed by party members during his trial and was a close aide to party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with no reports the Conservative denounced the crime or said anything about it after the conviction or sentence.

According to the indictment, Georgiadis paid minors aged 15 and above for sex during trips to Moldavia although the age of consent is only 15 there.
