A 56-year-old Cypriot was detained at Athens airport on Sunday after security staff discovered the skeletal remains of a nun in his baggage.
"He maintained it was a woman who was a saint," a Greek police official said. The remains were those of a nun who died four years ago.
The monk was freed after being charged with numerous charges including, theft and desecrating the dead. He was also suspended from his monastic duties for the three coming months for going away without leave, police said!
