The police have announced the arrest of 58-year-old Yannis Kastanis, better known as the “phony doctor” from Skyros, on Sunday evening. Kastanis had been arrested earlier in October while in the USA over visa violations and was deported to Greece.

A European warrant for Kastanis’ arrest had previously been issued by Interpol, after he was convicted in absentia to 21 months imprisonment for inciting false statement and report to authorities, as well as seizing false certificates.

For about 13 years the 58-year-old man acted as the director of general medicine at regional medical center on the island of Skyros. Kastanis secured the position by claiming to be a doctor and using a false diploma.
