The finances of PASOK, the junior coalition partner, are to be the focus of an investigation that has been ordered by a prosecutor, according to a report by the Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper over the weekend.
According to the daily, the probe is to focus on the 2007-10 period when the most serious cases of mismanagement are alleged to have occurred. The report claimed that an audit carried out by PASOK last year has not been given to the judiciary. The report allegedly revealed that more than 100 million euros of the Socialists’ cash was unaccounted for.
Responding, PASOK said it had given the judiciary all information requested, adding that “certain circles” were trying to undermine the party.
