Prosecutor seeks guilty verdicts over beating of Egyptian worker

A prosecutor recommended on Wednesday that a Piraeus court find guilty the four men suspected of beating and abusing Egyptian bakery worker Walid Talb (photo) on the island of Salamina 2012.

Talb alleges that he was tied up, beaten and sexually abused by the owner of the bakery where worked, the man’s son and two other men after he had demanded several months’ worth of unpaid wages.

The prosecutor recommended that the bakery owner be deemed the instigator and the other three men accomplices.

They face charges of kidnapping, robbery and causing unprovoked bodily harm.

Talb managed to escape his captors and was found collapsed by a tree with a chain around his neck. He had to be taken to hospital for treatment.

He continues to suffer health problems as a result of the beating and is also receiving psychological support as he fears leaving his home.

The court is expected to issue its verdict on June 30.
