First Three of Sorras’ Associates Granted Time to Prepare Plea for Felony Charges

    Three of the seven associates of fugitive Artemis Sorras were granted time until June 21 on Friday to prepare their plea for a sleuth of felony offenses in relation to an ongoing investigation into the activities of Sorras’ political group “Ellinon Synelefsis” (Assembly of Greeks).

    The charges they are facing include fraud against the State, banks and social security funds, forming and running a criminal gang and money laundering.

    Sorras, who has been sentenced in absentia to eight years imprisonment without parole for embezzlement, came to public attention after claiming he could repay Greece’s debt mountain using his alleged fortune totaling hundreds of billions of euros.
