Ex Radio Arvyla co-host arrested over “revenge porn” videos 1

One-time co-host of popular Radio Arvyla TV show, Stathis Panagiotopoulos was arrested on Wednesday after more victims of “revenge porn” victims filed complaints against him.

Police and court officials in the northern city of Thessaloniki said the 58-year-old man was taken into custody for alleged breaches of personal data protection laws. He was identified by Greek media as Stathis Panagiotopoulos, a member of the popular “Radio Arvyla”

Panagiotopoulos is anticipated to remain in the detention centre of the General Police Directorate of Thessaloniki overnight and appear before the prosecutor early on Thursday Morning

Panagiotopoulos was removed from the show earlier this month after a former partner alleged that he had posted online, without her consent, videos of them having sex. More complaints followed, and the allegations led to a broad discussion in Greece about men publishing pornographic material without the consent of the women involved.
