Priests sen­tenced.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Two priests in Farsala, cen­tral Greece, have been sen­tenced to 18 and six years be­hind bars re­spec­tively, af­ter they were found guilty of em­bez­zling 930,000 eu­ros from the Greek state through a scheme that in­volved forged salary lists for priests. The fraud was dis­cov­ered fol­low­ing an in­spec­tion car­ried out by a Fi­nance Min­istry unit in Thes­saly in 2012. The two priests, one of whom was al­ready in prison, were also or­dered to pay 710,000 and 220,000 eu­ros, re­spec­tively, to the state in dam­ages.
