Dimitris Tsipras

A company belonging to the Tsipras family was granted a project worth 1.1 million euros in 2012 raising concerns of corruption after the case never reached court.

On Monday, press spokeswoman for conservative New Democracy, Maria Spyraki announced that the project was granted to technical company Diodos, owned by the Prime Minister’s brother Dimitri, on the basis of a fake social security clearance certificate.

Spyraki noted that Dimitris Tsipras was indicted to trial over the affair in 2015, adding that the following year legislation was changed “overnight” to ensure that the case was not examined in court.
