Three executives of private Greek power firms held on graft charges

Last November, the chief executive officer of Hellas Power, Vassilis Milionis, became the fifth suspect to be remanded in pretrial custody in connection to alleged debts to the state.

The two companies are accused of withholding some 200 million euros from the state.
