GENOP hits back at graft claims

The Public Power Corporationís main workersí union, GENOP, hit back on Thursday at accusations of corruption, as its president, Nikos Fotopoulos, claimed the labor group was being targeted because of its opposition to the sale of PPC power plants.

Fotopoulos held a news conference two days after prosecutors filed charges of breach of faith and fraud against officials who were in charge of PPC and GENOP between 1999 and 2010. The GENOP chief denied that his union mishandled any of the 30 million euros of funding it received from PPC.

Fotopoulos said that some discrepancies in amounts paid to travel agencies compared to the invoices received by GENOP may have resulted from tax evasion by the firms involved. He admitted that a major report was assigned to a company run by his predecessor but added that GENOP would not be handing paid work to any membersí relatives in the future.
