A 65-year-old British pedophile, who was wanted in his home country and had an international arrest warrant issued against him by Interpol, is considered especially dangerous. The wanted man had found refuge in Kos, where he was arrested on Saturday.

The Englishman is accused of offences against sexual freedom against minors that he had committed in his home country, Proto Thema reported. He had allegedly sexually abused underage girls and boys and had also used violence against them.

After his arrest by Security Police officers who located him on the island, the 65-year-old was referred to the Dodecanese Prosecutor's Office in Rhodes, which is proceeding with his extradition to the UK authorities, who are looking for him based on the international warrant.
