The trial of the in­flu­en­tial me­dia mag­nate Stavros Psy­charis has been in­def­i­nitely post­poned af­ter a court yes­ter­day ac­cepted his claim that the in­dict­ment he was served was in­valid. A three­mem­ber panel of judges threw the in­dict­ment out be­cause it did not ac­cu­rately say whether or not Psy­charis – head of the Lam­brakis Press Group (DOL), which owns Ta Nea news­pa­per, among oth­ers – broke the law in re­la­tion to his source of in­come dec­la­ra­tion (pothen es­ches). He was served the in­dict­ment af­ter Par­lia­ment’s trans­parency and ethics com­mit­tee con­cluded that his dec­la­ra­tion was in­ac­cu­rate and in­com­plete. The case has been de­ferred to a pros­e­cu­tor of first in­stance.
