German Radio Ham arrested in Greece

Greek newspapers report on the arrest of a German radio amateur, Baldur Drobnica DJ6SI on holiday in Mastichari, Kos, apparently for the 'crime' of operating amateur radio equipment.

Greek news reports appear to indicate the 75 year old was arrested under a 1929 decree for illegal operation of radio telegraph equipment.

The Aegean News reports that he was on holiday with his wife who has Alzheimer's.

A photograph published by Aegea News show injuries reportedly received from handcuffs.
