  • [01] Arrest of foreign kidnappers preying on illegal migrans

    (ANA-MPA) -- Police on Monday reported several arrests of a group comprised of Third World foreign nationals that was allegedly engaged in the abduction and imprisonment of other foreign nationals, who were kept hostage and brutally tortured until their relatives paid ransom for their release.

    A raid in a rundown downtown Athens apartment, which police said was used by the suspects to keep and torture their victims, led to the arrest of 10 Afghans and four Pakistanis, aged between 16 and 31.

    Police were acting on information from a foreign national who charged that the suspects were holding his brother and asking for ransom to release him.

    Meanwhile, a 41-year-old Afghan was also arrested in downtown Athens on Saturday on charges of being an accessory to the abduction of an Afghan boy in Italy. The suspect is allegedly the leader of an illegal migrant trafficking ring that transported illegals from Greece to Europe.

    The 41-year-old allegedly arranged the transportation of the minor from Greece to Italy for the sum of 3,800 euros but members of the ring in Italy held the boy hostage, asking for 10,000 euros to take him to his family in Switzerland.

    The youth was released following an international police cooperation that led to the Rome apartment used by the abductors. (ANA-MPA)
