Thessaloniki man jailed for abusing daughter

A 53-year-old father of 13 was sentenced by a Thessaloniki court on Thursday to 14 years in prison for sexually molesting his 14-year-old daughter.

According to the prosecution, the abuse occurred in 2011, when the girl was just 9 years old.

The case first came to the attention of authorities after the girl wrote two letters to her teachers at high school.

Her mother testified in court that the father was violent to the child and would occasionally lock her in the bathroom naked.

The father denied the charge, describing his action as “fatherly caresses.”
