Former Attica Metropolitan Panteleimon will be imprisoned after being sentenced to six years in prison by an Athens court on charges of embezzlement.

The former Metropolitan was found guilty of embezzling 66.5 million drachmas from Osios Efrem Monastery in the coastal town of Nea Makri over the 1995-1998 period.

During his first trial, Panteleimon had been handed down a suspended eight-year prison sentence, but on Friday the court ordered his detention.
