Five em­ploy­ees of the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Thes­sa­loniki faced an in­ves­ti­gat­ing mag­is­trate yes­ter­day over the em­bez­zle­ment of more than 50 mil­lion eu­ros in mu­nic­i­pal funds. The de­fen­dants – four women and one man – re­port­edly re­buffed charges of em­bez­zle­ment and fraud, claim­ing to have been sim­ply car­ry­ing out the or­ders of their su­pe­ri­ors. A to­tal of 25 peo­ple, in­clud­ing the city’s for­mer Mayor Vas­silis Pa­pa­geor­gopou­los, have been im­pli­cated.
