Cor­rup­tion case re­opened

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ju­di­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tions into busi­ness­man An­dreas Vgenopoulos have been re­opened and will be over­seen by anti-cor­rup­tion pros­e­cu­tor Eleni Raikou, it has emerged. Ap­peals court pros­e­cu­tor Ge­or­gia Tsa­tani had been re­spon­si­ble for prob­ing Vgenopoulos’s role as the main share­holder in Cyprus’s now-de­funct Laiki Bank but shelved her in­ves­ti­ga­tion, claim­ing that there was not enough ev­i­dence to sup­port any al­le­ga­tions of wrong­do­ing. Tsa­tani, how­ever, is now fac­ing dis­ci­plinary ac­tion for not pro­ceed­ing with the case. Ju­di­cial of­fi­cials also say that new ev­i­dence has come to light, prompt­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to be re­opened. Vgenopoulos de­nies any wrong­do­ing.
