Suspect in sexual assault case released pending trial


A 58-year-old accused of sexually molesting two young mentally disabled people – aged 14 and 20 – was conditionally released on Monday by a court on the eastern Aegean island of Lesvos pending trial.

The suspect was arrested last week on the northern Aegean island of Limnos after a complaint filed to local police in the town of Myrina by three teachers at a special education school attended by both victims.

He had been remanded in custody and transferred to Lesvos last Friday. He has denied all charges.
