Police Detain Colleague Found Bound in Nikea Apartmernt

October 25, 2018

ATHENS – A Greek policeman found beaten and bound in an apartment in Nikea and two of 7 Pakistani nationals living there were detained after testifying on Wednesday.

Police raided the apartment last week after a neighbor complained of loud noise, found their colleague, and confiscated 317 illegal cigarette packs. The two Pakistanis were detained over another case.

The bound policeman, 34, and the foreign nationals gave conflicting evidence, the first claiming he was following the Pakistanis who looked suspicious and the latter claiming they were attacked by a group of robbers and managed to hold the last member, who was the policeman. The robbers were wearing masks, four of which were found in the apartment, and had taken cigarette packs, mobiles and cash.

The policeman’s lawyer said her client had to be admitted to hospital for surgery, and claimed he was detained because the testifying was not completed yet. Police have suspended their colleague.
A lawyer for the Pakistanis said that he would file for the release of his two detained clients.
