A female employee at the self-employed workers' social insurance fund OAEE was taken hostage on Thursday morning by a man insured with OAEE, who doused her with petrol and threatened to set her on fire.

The man, enraged at what he considered an unacceptable delay in processing his application for a pension, entered the OAEE offices on the corner of Patission and Tsiler Streets at 9:30 a.m. and headed up to the third floor where the woman's desk was. He then tied her up with wire, doused her with petrol and threatened to set her alight.

He was arrested before he could carry out his threat, however, and is now being held at the Patissia police station.
