Swiss Prosecutors to Interrogate Tsochatzopoulos



    tsochatzopoulosThe Greek prosecutors leading the investigation into the defense contract bribery scandal seem to have run down new evidence that will shed even more light on their investigation.

    Prosecutors Gavriil Mallis and Yiannis Stavropoulos have managed to get access to foreign bank accounts and bank statements of the people accused of being involved in the case and are now able to track down the movement of black money used in bribing officials for securing the Greek defense contract deal.

    Swiss prosecutors are expected to visit Athens in the beginning of February in order to take statements from all the parties involved in the defense contract scandal. Former minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos, his wife Vicky Stamati and the minister’s cousin Nikos Zigras, who are already serving time in Greek prison for their involvement, are the main target of the Swiss authorities, who have initiated their own investigation into money laundering and seek to find crucial answers during their stay in Athens.

    Meanwhile, the representative of the company MIE Hellas, Michail Matantos, who together with the German Ferrostaal were handling the bribes in the submarines’ deal, is scheduled on Thursday to appear before court and face his charges.

    1. I LOVE IT! — The Swiss are now “PRETENDING” they didn’t know a thing about all this “Black Money” in the millions & billions in their own Swiss Banks as being from Fraud or whatever!!
      What a JOKE, when these Swiss have been hiding Gangsters, Dictators, Mafia and even Nazi money for 70 years… The poor Swiss are so inncocent !!

      They didn’t know in Greece today we have 2 “Criminal Gangs” from PASOK and New
      Democracy Parties running a government of Thieves, Liars & Crooks who
      created all these problems today while hiding their BRIBE money in Swiss Banks???

      It was PASOK & ND Parties who created all the financial problems in Greece
      by their corrupt rule and mismanagement– (Akis Tzahadzopolous and Yiannos
      Papantoniou are ex-MPs from PASOK who are an example of their horrific
      corruption).

      1.) Why isn’t PASOK’s MP Venizelos in jail for hiding the Legarde List 2 years
      in his home? And what about Venizelos’ controversial submarine bribery deal, he
      signed in 2010?

      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 penny yet?

      4.) What about Health Minister Georgiades who got caught cheating on his taxes
      the other day and was let off with a minor fine of 1200 Euros. Whys is he still
      a Minister and not fired??

      5.) Why aren’t Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his sister Dora in jail after taking
      BRIBES from Seimens?

      It seems to me the Gov’t and Press here is using ANYTHING 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– They MUST ALL BE IMPEACHED and JAILED for high crimes and
      TREASON against the Greek People and State!
