Lagarde list ‘should have been registered,’ says state legal counsel

The Greek state’s legal counsel, Anastasios Banos, heaped more pressure on ex-Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou (photo) by telling the parliamentary committee probing the doctoring of the Lagarde list of depositors that he should have officially recorded receipt of the CD containing the data.

Banos is reported to have told MPs during questioning that finished late on Thursday that the CD’s handover should have been registered at the Greek Embassy in Paris.

Banos also told deputies that he spoke to Papaconstantinou in September 2012 and asked him to name the aide to whom the minister gave the CD when it arrived from France but the minister failed to do so.
