Suspect for 2012 Theft of Paintings from National Gallery Going Before Prosecutor

ATHENS — The 49-year-old man accused of stealing paintings from the National Gallery nine years ago was on Wednesday led before a public prosecutor, who will execute the warrant issued against him after he confessed to the crime. Later, he will be led before examining magistrate Athanassios Marneris and either testify immediately or request some time to prepare his deposition.

The accused faces a sentence of up to 10 years imprisonment for grand larceny, while if the theft is from public-sector law legal entities, the penalty is at least 10 years in prison.


ATHENS - A record heat wave in the summer of 2023 was followed by the warmest winter recorded in Greece, with long periods of temperatures above normal, a pattern seen in six of the previous 10 years.
