Eight arrested in illegal brothels raids


Eight people were arrested Monday after a series of police raids on illegal brothels in central Athens.

The suspects, aged between 19 and 55, face charges of violating laws governing prostitution and rules concerning the illegal operation of brothels without proper documentation.

All of the suspects, six of whom are women, appeared before a prosecutor on Monday.

The suspects also face charges of violating immigration laws, as an undisclosed number of those arrested were foreign nationals.
