Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

One of the five people arrested last week near Syn­tagma Square, cen­tral Athens, in con­nec­tion with a for­tunetelling scam has been re­manded in cus­tody, au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day. Three oth­ers were con­di­tion­ally re­leased while a fifth sus­pect was re­leased un­con­di­tion­ally. The sus­pects had been rounded up on sus­pi­cion of ex­tract­ing thou­sands of euros from gullible clients who were promised help to deal with problems fore­seen in their fu­ture. The 44year-old woman who was re­manded de­nied all charges. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, one of the sus­pects had man­aged to ex­tract 52,500 euros from one of her clients, claim­ing she was able to pre­vent problems that she fore­saw.
