Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece’s for­mer top cor­rup­tion pros­e­cu­tor Eleni Raikou has sub­mit­ted a suit ac­cus­ing her col­league Eleni Touloupaki, who suc­ceeded her as cor­rup­tion pros­e­cu­tor, of vi­o­lat­ing the se­crecy of tes­ti­mony and slan­der­ing both her and her hus­band in re­la­tion to the No­var­tis health scan­dal probe. Raikou’s suit re­lates to re­ports nam­ing her hus­band, doc­tor Lazaros Kar­ne­sis, as one of the peo­ple on the list of med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als be­ing in­ves­ti­gated in the af­fair. As Touloupaki is over­see­ing the probe, Raikou holds her re­spon­si­ble for the leak of in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to her hus­band. Kar­ne­sis has pub­licly re­sponded to the re­ports link­ing him to the probe, deny­ing any con­nec­tion with the Swiss phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany be­yond the par­tic­i­pa­tion in a group study in 2009 for which he re­ceived 1,000 eu­ros. He has also lodged a le­gal suit against Touloupaki and her as­so­ci­ates.
