Tsochatzopoulos launches appeal over use of personal notes

Former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos on Thursday appealed to the Hellenic Data Protection Authority to intervene after a decision by a court hearing his trial for money laundering to allow extracts of his diary and personal notes to be read out during the proceedings.

Tsochatzopoulos accused the court of being “biased,” a suggestion that was rejected by prosecutor Georgia Adeilini.

“There are many witnesses in the court, the procedure is public and we are all being judged,” she said.
