Sav­vaidou fac­ing felony charge

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The former head of pub­lic rev­enues, Ka­te­rina Sav­vaidou, is to face felony charges, an­ticor­rup­tion prose­cu­tors de­cided yes­ter­day.

The two ju­di­cial of­fi­cials, Ioan­nis Dra­gat­sis and An­ge­liki Tri­antafyl­lou, deemed that the breach of faith charges against Sav­vaidou for her de­ci­sion to ask for a 78-mil­lion-euro fine on an IT com­pany from north­ern Greece to be re­viewed should be treated as a felony rather than a mis­de­meanor.

Sav­vaidou de­nies any wrong­do­ing and in­sists the re­quest for a re­view would not have led to the state suf­fer­ing any dam­ages. Nev­er­the­less, the cabi­net de­cided last week to fire her af­ter she was charged in a sec­ond case in­volv­ing the ex­ten­sion of a dead­line for TV sta­tions to pay an ad­ver­tis­ing levy. Sav­vaidou has not been re­placed yet.
