Busi­ness­man, de­fense of­fi­cials to stand trial

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A coun­cil of ap­peals court judges yes­ter­day called for 17 peo­ple, in­clud­ing for­mer se­nior de­fense of­fi­cials, to stand trial over the ac­qui­si­tion of an elec­tronic de­fense sys­tem from busi­ness­man Thomas Li­ak­ounakos.

The en­tre­pre­neur is among those who are to stand trial. He was re­manded last year but has since been granted pre­trial re­lease on terms in­clud­ing his wear­ing a se­cu­rity bracelet. For­mer De­fense Min­istry of­fi­cial An­to­nis Kan­tas is among those fac­ing crim­i­nal charges of breach of faith. Li­ak­ounakos’s firm SONAK got 35 mil­lion euros from the state but failed to de­liver the de­fense sys­tem, pros­e­cu­tors said.
