Ex-national player arrested over failure to pay worker compensation

Former Greek national basketball team player Fanis Christodoulou was arrested and then bailed on the island of Paros on Friday after a court ordered him to pay 280,000 euros in compensation to an employee, money which the ex-athlete says he does not have.

A court ordered Christodoulou to pay the damages after finding him culpable for an accident at his construction company that left a worker paralyzed from the waist down.
