Five to testify in bailout probe

Five politicians are due to testify on Monday in an ongoing investigation into statements made by a former representative for Greece at the International Monetary Fund regarding the financial aid package drawn up for Greece in 2010.

Panayiotis Roumeliotis told The New York Times last month that the bailout program Greece signed up to with the IMF, the European Commission and European Central Bank ?was impossible to be implemented.?

Last week Roumeliotis told the two financial prosecutors probing the case that he had informed George Papandreou about his reservations. Aides of the former prime minister, however, deny that he had expressed any qualms.
