Lesvos priest nabbed for prostitution racket


An Orthodox priest was arrested yesterday on the Aegean island of Lesvos in connection with operating a prostitution racket, police said.

The 42-year-old priest, Constantinos Pnakas, was arrested in the early hours of yesterday morning after he allegedly arranged for an undercover policeman to have sex with a prostitute for 100 euros.

The suspect, the parish priest of a local church, then accompanied the policeman to a nearby hotel where the two met up with a Polish girl and was nabbed by police as he was leaving the premises.
