Three names on new Lagarde list related to former FinMin, report says

Three names on the new list sent to Greece by French authorities containing the names of Greek depositors at a branch of HSBC in Geneva are linked to former Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou, Skai television reported on Friday.

The new list of names was sent last week to Greek authorities after suspicions that a previous list -- handed over two years ago by then-French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde (currently managing director of the International Monetary Fund) to her Greek counterpart at the time, Papaconstantinou, and apparently lost in the process of an investigation for possible tax evasion -- had been tampered with.

The new list is being probed by prosecutors and has been submitted to Parliament as well so that it can conduct its own investigation into the names on the list and into whether the original list had been adulterated in any way.

According to Skai, the new list contains three additional names to the 200-odd on the original record. These three names are allegedly connected to Papaconstantinou, who had received the original list, and one of the three is said to have deposits at HSBC in Geneva of $1.22 million.

According to sources quoted by Skai, no other new names appeared on the new list that is being investigated by financial prosecutors.
