Embezzlement trial of former AEK chairman postponed

The trial of the former chairman of AEK soccer club, Makis Psomiadis, has been postponed until September 25 due to a work stoppage by lawyers Wednesday.

Psomiadis is accused of embezzling 21.5 million euros from the Athens club’s coffers. He is also facing separate charges of being part of a gang that fixed the outcome of soccer matches between 2008 and 2011, when he was chairman of Kavala.

Psomiadis is due to go on trial for that alleged offense with another 10 people on September 23.
