Beos con­vic­tion.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A mis­de­meanors court yes­ter­day handed a two-year sus­pended pri­son sen­tence to Volos Mayor Achil­leas Beos, for­merly the head of the Olympiakos Volou soc­cer club, af­ter find­ing him guilty of try­ing to bribe a referee in 2011, but Beos was al­lowed to pay off the sen­tence for 7,280 eu­ros. The charges re­late to an in­ci­dent in 2011 when Beos is said to have threat­ened referee Gior­gos Daloukas. De­fend­ing him­self in court be­fore the ver­dict was is­sued, Beos protested his in­no­cence, claim­ing that the whole case had been built on au­dio record­ings that, he claimed, had been tam­pered with. Beos still faces a string of crim­i­nal charges, in­clud­ing run­ning a crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion and money laun­der­ing in con­nec­tion with a match-fix­ing scan­dal.
