Tsochatzopoulos trial to resume on Friday

The trial of former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos is to resume on Friday after the Athens Appeals Court heard from Financial Crimes Squad expert Nikos Maitos on Wednesday.

He gave judges information regarding the purchase of a number of expensive properties by offshore firms linked to the ex-minister and how Tsochatzopoulos and his wife, Viki Stamati, bought a luxury home near the Acropolis for 1.1 million euros in 2010.
