Prosecutor asks for probe into fund misuse at ministries

Financial prosecutor Spyros Mouzakitis, who has been probing the use of secret funds by the Foreign Ministry, on Wednesday asked the Finance Ministry to examine claims that the Public Order and Defense ministries misused off-the-books payments from 2006 onward.

Meanwhile, Alternate Culture Minister Costas Tzavaras told MPs the law will be changed so non-governmental organizations have to account for how they spend public funds. NGOs received 43.3 million euros this year, 70.6 million last year and 109.2 million in 2010.
