Parliamentary committee to probe former minister

A parliamentary committee that checks MPs source of wealth declarations (pothen esches in Greek) has asked the financial crimes squad (SDOE) to provide further information about a former minister who is alleged to have 178 million euros in undeclared bank deposits.

Quoting unnamed sources, Skai TV said the ex-minister, who served in a New Democracy government, did not declare the money to tax authorities either.

The committee will also ask for more information about former Economy and Finance Minister Giorgos Alogoskoufis and ex-Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos after receiving details of the financial transactions of former ministers allegedly involved in the Siemens cash-for-contracts scandal.

Sources close to Alogoskoufis said that his financial details have been fully declared and that the ex-minister has nothing to hide.
