Two men accused of abusing 5-year-old in Rodopi

A court in Rodopi, northern Greece, is to rule on the alleged abuse of a 5-year-old boy by a local archimandrite and another man, according to local reports.

The 5-year-old complained twice about alleged sexual abuse at the hands of the archimandrite and another man inside a local monastery, once in September 2014 and again in November of the same year.

The extent of the abuse remained unclear while prosecutors suggested that the boy’s mother may have encouraged the abuse.
