Lavrentiadis and 5 others banned from leaving country

The Council of Appeals Court Judges on Tuesday banned from leaving the country the main shareholder of Proton Bank, Lavrentis Lavrentiadis (photo), and another five people implicated in the case of allegedly questionable loans of some 700 million euros made by the lender to Lavrentiadis?s group of companies.

The court deemed that the six suspects were a flight risk, particularly Lavrentiadis, whose wealth would facilitate a quick departure abroad.
