  • [01] Briton charged in synagogue attacks remanded in custody

  • [01] Briton charged in synagogue attacks remanded in custody

    (ANA-MPA) -- A 32-year-old British national, one of five men accused by Greek authorities of involvement in the unprecedented twin arson attacks on a medieval Jewish synagogue in Hania (Crete) earlier this month, was remanded in custody on Tuesday.

    The man was jailed pending trial following a joint decision by an investigating magistrate and a public prosecutor in Hania.

    A local man from the nearby port city of Irakleio, 24, as well as another Briton, 22, was released after providing testimony in the extremely sensitive incident, which generated international media attention and condemnation from around the world.

    The pair were conditionally released and ordered not to leave the country and to appear at a local police station twice a month.

    Bail was set at 2,000 euros for the Greek national and 3,000 euros for the Briton. All three are facing felony charges for intentional arson and collusion to carry out arson. The two British nationals have been alternately identified as bartenders and bar touts in Hania's popular old quarter.

    Meanwhile, a 24-year-old US citizen arrested at the beginning of the week due to his alleged involvement in the case will be led before an investigating magistrate on Thursday

    Another suspect, also identified as a US national, is wanted in the case.
