A 67 year-old cardiologist from Athens was kidnapped on Sunday afternoon from his holiday home in Stamata, Attica prefecture, and was released after his family paid a ransom to the abductors, police revealed on Tuesday.
The kidnappers had initially asked for 2 million euros in ransom, but after negotiations the family paid an unknown sum, and the doctor was released on Monday afternoon.
Attica security police are conducting an investigation.
