Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Supreme Court de­cided yes­ter­day that 14 peo­ple should stand trial for the no­to­ri­ous prop­erty swap be­tween the Vato­pedi Monastery and the state six years ago.

Those who will face charges of breach of trust and mak­ing false dec­la­ra­tions in­clude the monastery’s ab­bot, Ephraim, a monk, Arse­nios, and the wife of for­mer Pub­lic Or­der Min­is­ter Gior­gos Voul­gar­akis, Ka­te­rina Peleki.

The Supreme Court backed an ear­lier decision by the coun­cil of ap­peals court judges that the sus­pects should stand trial as there is ev­i­dence to sug­gest that tax­pay­ers’ in­ter­ests were dam­aged dur­ing the ex­change.
