Two Moldovan na­tion­als were re­manded in cus­tody in Athens yes­ter­day af­ter ap­pear­ing be­fore a prose­cu­tor for the ab­duc­tion last week of busi­ness­man Mano­lis Karamolegos. The two men, aged 37 and 27, were charged with kid­nap­ping, rob­bery, caus­ing bod­ily harm and il­le­gal weapons pos­ses­sion. The 37-year-old, who turned him­self in to au­thor­i­ties last week, told the court that he planned the ab­duc­tion on his own. He said he gave up on his at­tempt to ex­tract a ran­som from the fam­ily when he thought that his two accomplices had been ar­rested. The other kid­nap­per, aged 27, said he had been hired by the 37-year-old as a driver and did not know that he would be at­tempt­ing to abduct any­one. Po­lice are still look­ing for a third sus­pect.
