Black­mail charges.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A 58-year-old man and his 32-year-old son were ar­rested yes­ter­day on charges of at­tempted ex­tor­tion and slan­der of a pro­pri­etor of a meat pro­cess­ing com­pany in the Rendi sub­urb of Athens. Ac­cord­ing to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the fa­ther at­tempted to black­mail the owner, whom he worked for, de­mand­ing 70,000 eu­ros not to post footage on­line that pur­port­edly showed that his com­pany il­le­gally marked for­eign meat as Greek. He also de­manded that the owner fire him so that he could get com­pen­sa­tion. But the owner did not give in to the de­mand, prompt­ing the 58-year old’s son to post seven al­legedly slan­der­ous videos on­line.
