Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Akis Tsochat­zopou­los, un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion for al­legedly ac­cept­ing bribes dur­ing the pur­chase of four Ger­man sub­marines for the Hel­lenic Navy a decade ago, faced the par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee prob­ing the af­fair yes­ter­day. In a six-hour tes­ti­mony, Tsochat­zopou­los claimed to be the vic­tim of po­lit­i­cal per­se­cu­tion and said the charges brought against him had been fab­ri­cated. ‘There is ab­so­lutely no ev­i­dence, even the slight­est bit, that gives any ba­sis to an at­tempt to link me to un­law­ful ac­tiv­i­ties,’ he said.
