Papaconstantinou to receive Lagarde list probe case file on Monday

Former Minister of Finance Giorgos Papaconstantinou is to appear before an emergency session of the parliamentary committee probing his handling of the so-called Lagarde list of wealthy Greeks on Monday in order to receive a copy of the case file so he can prepare to testify before the panel.

In a fiery speech before Parliament on Thursday, which preceded a vote by MPs to widen the scope of a criminal investigation into his handling of the list, Papaconstantinou said he would respond to questions by the committee if he is given time to peruse the case file.
