Former Stockholm Ambassador Jailed for Sexual Harassment
Cyrpus’ former ambassador to Sweden has gone to jail for seven months, after being convicted for the sexual harassment of two women working at the Stockholm embassy.
Costa Papadimas was found guilty of 23 counts relating to sexual harassment and indecent assault while serving as his country’s ambassador here between 2001 and 2005. In announcing its ruling the court in Nicosia said the diplomat’s behaviour was reprehensible.
The married father of two children denied the charges, claiming that he had had an affair with one of the women, who turned on him when he broke off the relationship.
