Supreme Court asked to intervene in sale of adulterated fuel to military

Justice Ministry general secretary Giorgos Sourlas on Tuesday asked the Supreme Court to intervene to stop adulterated fuel being sold to the armed forces.

Sourlas first made allegations about the practice several years ago but on Tuesday gave new evidence to the Supreme Court’s deputy prosecutor Nikos Pantelis.

Tests have suggested that about 20 percent of the fuel used by the armed forces is adulterated.
