Barwoman accused of pimping daughter

A 48-year-old waitress on the island of Karpathos in the Dodecanese and the 58-year-old owner of the bar where she worked were being questioned by police yesterday after the woman’s 15-year-old daughter claimed that she had been forced to have sex with bar patrons. According to reports in the local newspaper Proodos, the woman had been working at the bar for 10 days since relocating to the island with her daughter from Crete. The girl, who visited local police early on Tuesday, allegedly claimed her mother had been forcing her to have sex with patrons of other bars since 2007. The mother has denied the charges. Police yesterday detained a 35-year-old bar patron the girl is alleged to have slept with on Monday night for 100 euros. Officers are seeking the girl’s father, a Cretan, who is reportedly estranged from the mother, a native of Pyrgos in Ileia.
