Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The wife and brother of New Democ­racy MP Gerasi­mos Gi­ak­oumatos faced a prose­cu­tor yes­ter­day on sus­pi­cion of tax of­fenses. The pair are be­ing ques­tioned in con­nec­tion to fi­nances of the fam­ily busi­ness, a re­tire­ment home in the north­ern Athe­nian sub­urb of Neo Psy­chico. The law­maker’s brother was the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, while his wife was the home’s pres­i­dent. The MP him­self is pro­tected from prose­cu­tion by his par­lia­men­tary im­mu­nity. “This is about a small tax of­fense that we have never been asked to ex­plain. This is what the crime is all about,” the deputy told jour­nal­ists.
