Greece’s former defence minister charged with money laundering



A Greek prosecutor has pressed charges of money laundering against Greece’s former defence minister Yiannos Papantoniou and his wife Stavroula Kourakou, who are now forbidden to exit the country.

The charges were made following the completion of the preliminary investigation into bank accounts held abroad and an audit into real estate acquisitions since 2000.

According to sources, the charge concerns a specific bank account of Papantoniou which was discovered through the so-called “Borjans list” of Greek bank depositors in Switzerland.

The bank account is one of three for which Greek authorities have requested information on by Swiss counterparts.
