A businessman on the island of Rhodes has been arrested by police, accused of assigning a "death contract" against another businessman to a 31-year-old Albanian national, who was also arrested. According to local police on Thursday, the businessman had hired an Albanian hit-man to kill the second businessman, with whom he apparently had differences.
The Albanian was arrested first, and at a pre-arranged meeting between the two the businessman was also arrested.
Police found a hand-written with instructions on how the execution was to take place, together with the receipt of a bank payment order for the sum of 12,000 euros in the businessman's possession.
The detainees will be taken before a local prosecutor later in the day.
