Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The trial of a for­mer head of the Fi­nan­cial Crime Squad (SDOE), Yian­nis Di­o­tis, on charges of breach of faith in con­nec­tion with his han­dling of the La­garde list, started yesterday and was ad­journed un­til Oc­to­ber 29. Di­o­tis, who is ac­cused of fail­ing to make use of the list to raise much-needed tax rev­enue, had claimed, in tes­ti­mony be­fore a spe­cial court that tried for­mer Fi­nance Min­is­ter Gior­gos Pa­pa­con­stanti­nou last year, that the lat­ter did not give him a mem­ory stick con­tain­ing the 2,062 de­pos­i­tors’ names be­fore leav­ing the min­istry. Pa­pa­con­stanti­nou, for his part, avoided prison last year af­ter the court re­duced the crim­i­nal charge of doc­tor­ing a doc­u­ment to a mis­de­meanor.
