  • [01] Two deaf-mute brothers charged in grave robberies

    Two deaf-mute half-brothers aged 39 and 15 were arrested on Tuesday at Athens' First Cemetery, charged with grand theft (from grave-looting) and insulting the dead.

    According to police, the two suspects had broken into the cemetery at least four times since last March and destroyed approximately 60 graves, from which they looted several objects including a silver icon.

    At the time of their arrest the perpetrators had already taken two icons and other objects from graves they had earlier violated.

    The two men will be sent later Tuesday before a public prosecutor.
