Ex-governor questioned

Former Central Macedonia Governor Panayiotis Psomiadis was released on Thursday after being questioned by a magistrate in Thessaloniki in connection to claims that he directly assigned a contract to a private firm to take children to local schools rather than launch a tender for the scheme.

He denies any wrongdoing.

Psomiadis was found guilty of breach of duty by an appeals court earlier this year for reducing a fine imposed on a Thessaloniki gas station that sold adulterated fuel while he was the northern port city?s prefect.
