Griveas, Vatsika granted deposition extension

Businessman Kyriakos Griveas and his wife, Anastasia Vatsika, were granted an extension to submit their depositions after facing an Athens magistrate on Thursday.

The couple is facing charges for allegedly receiving unsecured business loans worth 17 million euros from the Hellenic Postbank (TT). The funds allegedly ended up in their personal accounts.

The defendants arrived in Athens on Wednesday after being extradited from Britain. According to their attorney, they returned to Greece voluntarily.

The case is part of an ongoing probe regarding loans issued by the local lender. Among those facing charges is TT’s former chairman, Angelos Filippidis.
