Probe into unsecured TT loans widens

At least three prominent businesspeople are being investigated by Greece’s judicial authorities in connection with the loans scandal at Hellenic Postbank, also known as TT, Kathimerini understands.

The three, two Greeks and one Cypriot, reportedly received loans between 2008 and 2009, when TT was chaired by Angelos Filippidis, who is awaiting extradition from Turkey. According to sources, one of them will be called to testify in the coming days.

Meanwhile, authorities are trying to track money flows in Montenegro as officials in the Balkan country have shared information on one of the figures who is believed to have played a key role in the case between 2007 and 2008, Kathimerini says without naming the suspect.

Also, apart from looking into Filippidis’s assets at Greece’s Millennium Bank, investigators have asked Swiss authorities to open his accounts at HSBC Private Bank SA, Banque Privee BCP SA and other institutions as they seek to examine the source of some 14 million euros in wealth.

According to Kathimerini, on top of the unsecured loans granted by TT, investigators are also looking into evidence suggesting that millions of euros changed hands in bribes and kickbacks.
