A 48-year-old psychiatrist has been arrested in Thessaloniki for trafficking in child pornography material over the internet, in the framework of a collaboration between local police with Interpol, it was made known on Wednesday.

 

Police said that the detainee's trail was traced through an investigation on the internet, and a spot investigation was made at his office in downtown Thessaloniki on Tuesday, where police confiscated the psychiatrist's PC, which contained files with child porn videos.

At a subsequent search of the man's house, police found and confiscated a second PC hard drive, which was currently being examined by police experts.

The psychiatrist, who was detained at the Thessaloniki security police headquarters and was being interrogated, was also a collaborator at a local state hospital in a substance detox program, apart from his private practice.
