Officers of the Greek Police’s Dias motorcycle unit said on Tuesday they had arrested a 34-year-old Romanian national on people trafficking charges and for exposing minors to danger, including his own son, by forcing them to beg.

According to reports, a minor was seen coming out of a van driven by the suspect before begging at a traffic light in Voula, southern Athens.

The suspect was arrested and an investigation revealed that the minor was his son and that the 34-year-old transported several children in his van on a daily basis to various parts of Athens with the purpose of begging. The man appeared before a prosecutor on Tuesday.
