Greece #Metoo: Prominent actor Dimitris Lignadis held over rape accusations

Prominent Greek actor and director Dimitris Lignadis has been arrested over underage rape allegations.

Mr Lignadis, 56, is accused of raping a 14-year-old boy in 2010, and of a second assault, details of which have not been made public.

The former artistic director of the National Theatre of Greece denies all the accusations, his lawyer said.

He said Mr Lignadis was arrested after turning up voluntarily at a police station in Athens on Saturday.

His arrest comes weeks after former Greek Olympic champion Sofia Bekatorou revealed she had been sexually assaulted by an unnamed Hellenic Sailing Federation (HSF) executive, prompting a #Metoo movement in the country.

Greek Restaurants, Bars, Taverns Nearing COVID-19 Wipeout

With fears that thousands of restaurants, bars and taverns across Greece won’t survive a third lockdown aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, dozens have already closed in popular areas of the Greek capital.

That includes the hip area of Gazi, the rich enclave of Kolonaki and around Syntagma Square in the heart of the city, said Kathimerini in a report on their plight as they pleaded for more aid from the New Democracy government.

Landlords are looking for people willing to take a chance on renting space that is shut down to food sector businesses with no timetable on when the pandemic will be brought under control enough to let them reopen.
