Ab­duc­tion ring.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice in Athens yes­ter­day de­tained 14 un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants – 10 Afghans and four Pak­ista­nis – who are be­lieved to be mem­bers of an ab­duc­tion ring that de­tained im­mi­grants in a dingy apart­ment close to the city cen­ter and used black­mail to ex­tort large sums of money from the vic­tims’ rel­a­tives. Po­lice put the apart­ment un­der sur­veil­lance af­ter re­ceiv­ing a tip-off from a man claim­ing to be the brother of one of the de­tainees. Po­lice did not de­ter­mine how many peo­ple had been de­tained nor any de­tails about their eth­nic ori­gin. One of the vic­tims bore cig­a­rette burns on his arms, sources said.
