Prosecutor orders probe into leak of politicians list

Supreme Court prosecutor Yiannis Tentes on Friday ordered an urgent investigation regarding the leak of a list containing the names of more than 30 politicians currently under investigation for corruption by the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE).

The list included the names of 11 former ministers, 10 former deputy ministers and 12 former or current MPs, though the allegations against the politicians were not made public.

The probe will examine possible violation of official secrecy by SDOE officials as well as the involvement of journalists and media who published the list.
