The minor child of a 25-year-old foreigner, who forced him to beg on a busy street in Santorini, was at risk of being dragged away by the vehicles or the crowd of visitors, where officers from the Thira Police Sub-Division spotted him.

The perpetrator was arrested on Monday night when it was established that she was exploiting her child by targeting the compassion of tourists so that they would offer him alms, Proto Thema reported. In fact, during her arraignment, she provided false identification.

The money found in the 25-year-old's possession was confiscated, and a case was filed against her for human trafficking, exposing minors to danger and false testimony, with which she was referred to the Naxos District Attorney's Office.

A Greek woman was arrested at noon on Tuesday by the Security Police, following a complaint that for financial gain she was risking the life and physical integrity of her three minor children aged 13, 9 and 8, who were spotted by the police moving between the passing cars and begging.

The mother was taken to the prosecutor of Protodiki Pyrgos who prosecuted her for begging and exposing minors to danger.
