Ex defense minister indicted over false declaration

Former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos, currently in custody pending trial for money laundering, has been indicted to trial for submitting false information on his pothen esches (declaration of source of assets) form following a decision issued by an Athens appeals court on Wednesday.

The indictment relates to an inaccurate pothen esches declaration submitted by the former minister in 2010 when he is alleged not to have mentioned the acquisition of a property on the capital's exclusive Dionysiou Areopagitou Street under the Acropolis by his wife Viki Stamati, who is also in custody pending trial for money laundering.

Meanwhile sources indicate the discovery of new evidence implicating the former defense minister and his associates in a widening corruption probe following a search by authorities on the ex minister's home in Patissia, near central Athens. The search, which was ordered by a prosecutor following the ex minister's arrest last month, turned up several documents the content of which remained unclear on Wednesday.
