Greeks in Panama Papers to be investigated


Greek financial prosecutors were expected to forward mutual assistance requests to judicial authorities in Panama in the wake of revelations in the Panama Papers regarding Greek administrators of offshore companies in that country.

The requests were expected to be issued in the upcoming days, following an order by chief financial prosecutor Panayiotis Athanasiou.

Reports suggested that financial prosecutors probing cases of tax evasion regarding Greek depositors on the Lagarde and Borjan lists, for instance, were now in the process of investigating individuals of Greek-descent who appear in the recently leaked documents as administrators of offshore companies or foundations.
