A 50-year-old man who is alleged to have forced a 38-year-old woman to pose naked for photographs several times over 12 years was detained on Wednesday after officers raided his home and workplace and found electronic evidence linking him to the alleged offenses.

Officers of the Greek Police’s Cyber Crimes Unit started investigating the affair after the 38-year-old contacted them, claiming to have been a victim of blackmail since 2003, when she said she applied for a job that she thought would involve advertising products.

The suspect subsequently used force to make her pose naked for photographs and then used those images to blackmail her into posing for similar nude shots over the years, the woman told police.
