A corruption prosecutor pressed charges of money laundering against former defense minister Yiannos Papantoniou and his wife Stavroula Kourakou on Friday, following the completion of the preliminary investigation into bank accounts held abroad.

The charge also follows an audit into the acquisition of their properties since 2000, when Papantoniou was minister. According to sources from the prosecution, the charge concerns a specific bank account of Papantoniou which was discovered through the so-called “Borjans list” of Greek bank depositors in Switzerland. The bank account is one of three for which Greek authorities have requested information on by Swiss counterparts. Following the charge, the former minister and his wife are forbidden to leave the country.(Source: ANA-MPA)
