Athens - A Greek Orthodox priest was arrested on suspicion of accessory to prostitution by an undercover police officer posing as a client, the semi-state Athens News Agency reported on Friday.

The unidentified clergyman, 42, was arrested on the island of Lesvos late on Thursday outside a local hotel room, where he had left the undercover officer with a 20-year-old Polish woman, the agency said.

The priest had brought the woman to her presumed client at a local bar earlier that evening, demanding a fee of 100.
