German arrested as accomplice in immigrant prostitution racket
April 26, 2000

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) -- Two Greeks and a German were arrested for
allegedly running a prostitution racket involving illegal immigrants from
the Ukraine and Moldova, police said Wednesday.

According to police, Reinhold Krieg, 39, from Riedlingen, was arrested late
Tuesday along with Polichronis Papadopoulos, 27, and Marino Maigo, in a
raid on an apartment in this northern port city.

The three men were allegedly holding five Ukrainian and one Moldovan woman
they had smuggled across the Greek border with Bulgaria.

They will be charged with running a prostitution racket and hosting illegal
aliens. All three were jailed pending trial.
