Tsochatzopoulos faces trial over ‘hidden’ property

Former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos is set to face trial for allegedly failing to declare a property he owns in one of the most sought-after locations in Athens on his origin of wealth (?pothen esches?) form in 2010.

Appeals prosecutor Galinos Bris recommended yesterday that Tsochatzopoulos stand trial for declaring an income of almost 251,000 euros, which included two bank loans totaling 150,000 euros, but not the building on Dionysiou Areopagitou Street.

Tsochatzopoulos insists the property came into his possession after the form was submitted.
