NYT: Judicial Inquiry on George Provopoulos Case


    NYT newspaper has cited an article dedicated to the judicial inquiry conducted against the Governor of the Bank of Greece, George Provopoulos, now being examined for having abused his position in a bank agreement.

    The article refers to a large bank deal which induced further investigation of the agreement, as it was found that Provopoulos had a personal involvement with the deal.

    On the other hand, the report also says that there is no evidence that Mr. Provopoulos had any personal benefit from this bank transaction, which was ultimately approved. However, his role in this agreement is being investigated, while the report notes that Mr. Provopoulos could face criminal charges abroad as well, as there are other countries of the Eurozone which have invested more than 40 billion euros in the Greek banking system. Consequently, there is heavy pressure in Athens to fight the corruption at all levels, including the banking system.

    The New York Times newspaper concludes that supporters of the Governor of the Bank of Greece are talking about political motives behind the judicial inquiry.


    1. Why doesn’t the Greek Justice System investigate the Bankers who gave the 2 criminal gangs from PASOK & New Democracy Parties 250 million Euros in “bogus loans” they never paid back yet??? This a Government of Thieves, Liars & Crooks who created all these problems today? It was PASOK & ND Parties who created Golden Dawn and the Far Left by their corrupt rule and mismanagement of Greece. (Akis Tzahadzopolous from PASOK is just one example of their corruption).

      1.) Why isn’t PASOK’s MP Venizelos in jail for hiding the Legarde List 2
      years in his home?

      2.) Why isn’t PASOK’s Finance MP Papconstantiou in jail for removing his
      relative’s names on the List?

      3.) What about PASOK & ND Parties still owing 250 million Euros to the
      Banks in phony loans they have not paid back a cent back yet?

      It’s clear the Gov’t and Press is using Golden Dawn as a “distraction” to take attention away from the Massive Crimes these two corrupt Parties have committed as well as Treason against the whole Greek nation after 39 years of corrupt rule!

    2. This will never happen for as long as our corrupt politicians being immuned from prosecution…

    3. Provopoulos abused his position as Governor of the Bank of Greece? How shocking and surprising huh? Would never have thought that. Same goes for Tamvakakis and Rapanos. Two wonderful stand up gentlemen with National Bank of Greece. No way. These 3 men are honorable and look after the interest of Greece and its investors. And if you believe that, I also have a bridge to sell you.
      They are as CORRUPT as they come!
