A man calling himself Kostas, who Greek broadcaster Skai TV said was the brother of the 39-year-old male charged with abducting a four-year-old girl, said she was very loved and cared for.
"We got this girl in a very nice way. We raised her. We got her. She was given to us and we raised her," he said.
"She had problems with her eyes. We took her to the doctor, we took her everywhere. We didn't take her to sell her. We loved her so much, with so much passion, to doctors, to paediatricians, to so many doctors," Kostas said.
