Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Pros­e­cu­tor Popi Pa­pan­dreou wrote to the Hel­lenic Bank­ing As­so­ci­a­tion yes­ter­day to ask for the de­tails of the bank em­ploy­ees who ap­proved loans to heav­ily in­debted com­pa­nies be­long­ing to busi­ness­man Yian­nis Karouzos and his wife, Revekka Skaf­toura. Karouzos, ac­tive in the con­struc­tion sec­tor, was ar­rested in De­cem­ber over debts to the state. His group of com­pa­nies is es­ti­mated to have bor­rowed some 300 mil­lion eu­ros and the pros­e­cu­tor wants to es­tab­lish whether any laws were bro­ken when Karouzos re­ceived the loans.
