+ - Man arrested in Greece for "Blasphemous" Facebook page

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A 27-year old man was arrested yesterday in Greece by the electronic crime police, for creating a Facebook page "Geron Pastitsios" which made fun of an extremely respected Christian-orthodox monk who lived in Mount Athos, as well as the Greek Church. The arrest came promptly after the greek far-right party which holds 7% of the parliament seats submitted an official petition asking the government to take down the page. The charges that the young man faces are "blasphemy" and "disrespect to the religious beliefs of others". More here (in Greek)"
