Heads of Court of Au­dit and Coun­cil of State are named

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The cabi­net named the new heads of two of Greece’s high­est courts yes­ter­day. Niko­laos Sakel­lar­iou was cho­sen as the pres­i­dent of the Coun­cil of State, the coun­try’s high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive court. Sakel­lar­iou had been the court’s longest-serv­ing deputy pres­i­dent. An­droniki Theotoka­tou was cho­sen as the head of the Court of Au­dit, where she too had been a deputy pres­i­dent. The two courts had been with­out of­fi­cial pres­i­dents for the last four months as the ten­ure of the pre­vi­ous top judges had ex­pired and the cabi­net had not ap­pointed their suc­ces­sors. There was no need for a new Supreme Court head to be named as Vas­si­liki Thanou, who re­cently served as care­taker prime min­is­ter, had al­ready been given this po­si­tion.
