The Greek Minister of Education and Religious Affairs Konstantinos Arvanitopoulos is expected to meet today with the Greek Minister of Health, Adonis Georgiadis, at the office of Christos Staikouras, the Alternate Minister of Finance. The three of them will discuss the sectors in which 17.3 million euros – money coming from economic crimes against Greek state – will be allocated.
The money has already been deposited in a special account which was opened at the Bank of Greece. It is expected that, in this bank account, Greece’s government will gather funds that originate from economic crimes against the Greek state.

- Antonis Kantas, 9,821,298 euros
- Yiorgos Kamaris, 7,352,222 euros
