The 40-year-old archimandrite, who was arrested for lewd acts against a 12-year-old boy in Ermionida, who was allegedly his spiritual father, has a deadline to apologize next Tuesday.

The 40-year-old used his mobile phone to record himself naked making obscene movements and sent such a video to the 12-year-old, which was noticed by the boy’s parents, who then reported him.

The priest himself said in his original statement that he accidentally sent the videos to the boy, as they were intended for another recipient with the same first and last name as the child.

“There is a seriousness about what has happened to the other children. This is what I am trying to figure out, what has happened to other children. My own child has not touched it, he did not have time. If he had touched it I would be in his place now, on trial. He has not touched it, we caught it because the child spoke to us immediately and we immediately acted with the Prosecution. Which could not be done quickly. We are educated, we understand from the conversation and all that there is another “branch”, said the 12-year-old’s mother speaking to ERT.

At the same time, it is being investigated if there were other children, who had fallen victim to him as the priest had contact with the youth as he was a catechetical teacher and particularly active on social media.
