According to the indictment ruling, a key role in the affair was played by the former president of Olympiakos Volos Achilleas Beos, the elected mayor of Volos currently on suspension due to the criminal charges levelled against him.

The list of 69 witnesses in the trial include Olympiakos president Vangelis Marinakis who had originally faced charges in the affair but was subsequently exempted.
