  • [01] Ten arrested for Panagopoulos kidnapping

  • [01] Ten arrested for Panagopoulos kidnapping

    Ten people have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of shipowner Periklis Panagopoulos and were led before a public prosecutor on Saturday. The case was solved by the Attica police, who were scheduled to make an announcement on Saturday afternoon.

    Commenting on the arrests on Friday night, Alternate Interior Minister Christos Markoyiannakis said that the kidnapping was a serious case that the police had been working on very methodically for the past six months and that the investigation was now at a "crucial stage".

    The 74-year-old shipowner had been abducted in January this year and was released unharmed after his wife paid the kidnappers a ransom. The shipowner was the second wealthy Greek businessman to be the victim of a kidnapping in the space of six months, after the case of northern Greek industrialist George Mylonas that was kidnapped in June 2008.
