Judges clear Bakoyannis of wrongdoing over ‘undeclared’ cash

A council of appeals court judges on Tuesday absolved New Democracy MP Dora Bakoyannis of any wrongdoing over her tax declaration.

Bakoyannis was accused of failing to declare on her derivation of wealth form (“pothen esches”) 1 million dollars her husband, Isidoros Kouvelos, obtained from the sale of shares in the USA and which he used to buy a ship in the UK in 2011.

Judges cleared Kouvelos in November.

Bakoyannis had asked for her parliamentary immunity to be lifted so she could be investigated as well.
