Politicians face graft probes

Prosecutors will be in a position later this summer to issue charges against dozens of current and former politicians in relation to their tax declarations and the possession of assets, following a broad investigation by the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE), sources have told Kathimerini.

SDOE is currently reviewing the financial details of up to 650 prominent figures after initial checks revealed inconsistencies in their E9 forms, which are used to declare properties each year. The list of those being investigated includes current MPs, former deputies, local authority officials, doctors, academics and lawyers, sources said.

It is estimated that most of the checks will be completed by the end of the summer, leading to dozens of people facing charges relating to the way assets came into their possession and submitting false tax declarations.

Kathimerini understands that meanwhile, judicial authorities are already conducting investigations into the use of public money, particularly with relation to defense spending, hospital supplies and funding for non-governmental organizations. These probes are also expected to lead to dozens of charges.
