Tsochat­zopou­los ap­peal.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

For­mer de­fense min­is­ter Akis Tsochat­zopou­los, who is serv­ing a 20-year sen­tence for money laun­der­ing at At­tica’s high-se­cu­rity Ko­ry­dal­los Prison, yes­ter­day lodged a fifth ap­peal for early re­lease, cit­ing health prob­lems. Fol­low­ing triple by­pass surgery last week, the 77-year-old is par­tic­u­larly frag­ile and his health will be at risk if he re­mains in prison, his sur­geon told a court yes­ter­day. The court rejected the for­mer min­is­ter’s last ap­peal in Fe­bru­ary, deem­ing that his con­tin­ued res­i­dence at Ko­ry­dal­los “would not cause ir­repara­ble dam­age” to his health.
