Greeks free nun-dressed Britons

The men being escorted to court

Seventeen British men arrested for wearing nuns’ habits and accused of offensive behaviour been freed by a court on the Greek island of Crete.

The prosecutors dropped the charges against them after no one showed up to testify that they had been upset by the tourists’ conduct.

The men, who were also wearing women’s lingerie, spent a night in police cells in Crete wearing their outfits.

They appeared in court on Monday in the clothes they had on when arrested.

They were apprehended in the early hours of Sunday morning and held for “scandal and misrepresentation of a costume or uniform”.

The male tourists, aged between 18 and 65, were in the seaside holiday town of Malia, and appeared in court in Iraklio.

The British Embassy in Athens confirmed that all 17 had been released.

The BBC’s Malcolm Brabant said the men, all from the Bristol area, went out dressed in habits and saucy lingerie, lifting up their skirts to reveal bottoms and G-strings.

For the past two or three years, Malia has become synonymous with Britons behaving badly and it has been awarded the dubious “party central” crown previously held by rowdy resorts such as Faliraki in Rhodes, and Kavos in Corfu, our correspondent added.

  1. Oh fuck!!!!!!

    While the church is raping children and getting away with it, these guys out taking the piss gets arrested, chucked in jail, and a huge armed escort.

    Pathetic. But it shows you what kind of a world we live in.

    Now if it was real nuns and priests behaving like this and worst, nobody would even bat an eyelid.

  2. These guys must be given medals.

    I think in two generations the RCC will be a shadow of the power they are at present.
