New Lagarde list CD presented to MP investigative committee

A CD containing the names of Greeks with deposit accounts in a Geneva branch of HSBC was presented on Wednesday to lawmakers comprising the committee investigating former Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou in connection to claims he doctored the list, known as the Lagarde list.

The CD, forwarded by French authorities, was delivered to the MPs in the presence of two police officers from the criminal investigations department.

The new CD was dispatched in order to verify its contents against the original CD addressed to the former Finance Minister.

The move followed a deposition of a close Papaconstaninou aide, Giorgos Angelopoulos, who testified that a CD handed overto him by the former Finance Minister contained a different file format compared to the original CD sent by the French authorities.
