Ex-minister gets suspended term over fake plates [Update]

Former Transport Minister Michalis Liapis was handed a four-year suspended jail sentence on Monday after being found guilty on charges of false certification and forgery for driving his car with forged license plates and no insurance.

Liapis was represented by his lawyers, who said the minister stayed home to avoid reporters, whom he has accused of hounding him since his arrest earlier this month.

The former conservative minister, who can pay off his sentence for just under 73,000 euros, was also given a 3,000-euro fine for driving an uninsured vehicle, which was stopped after running a stop sign in Artemida, eastern Attica, on December 17.
