Greek police has arrested three foreign nationals as suspects for the death of 25-year-old Nikos Moustakas at Filopappou Hill, opposite the Acropolis, last week.

According to reports they are two Pakistanis, a 17-year-old, a 26-year-old, and an Iraqi. The Pakistanis were arrested at the Eidomeni border crossing as they tried to flee Greece and the Iraqi was arrested in Athens.

The three suspects have reportedly admitted their act, but denied they pushed Nikos Moustakas off the cliff. They claim they tried to rob him and his girlfriend with the threat of a broken bottle, the young man resisted, stumbled, slipped and fell to his death.

Two of the suspects have been identified by the Portuguese girlfriend of Nikos.

Police sources say that after the robbery they turned off their mobiles and locked their profiles on social media. They also say that all three have been arrested in the past for similar style muggings.

On Thursday, the mother of Nikos accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of “negligence and complicity” in her son’s death, blaming him for failing to boost security in Athens.

She also suggested that the Greek state boost security in the broader area “rather than allocating half the police force to the protection of politicians and their families.”
