Tsochatzopoulos appeal postponed until November 14

The appeal of former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos, currently serving 20 years for accepting bribes in exchange for weapons contracts, was postponed until November 14 on Friday as the court examines a slew of objections filed by his defense.

Another 16 people, including the ex-minister’s wife, have been convicted of money laundering and other offenses in connection with the bribes-for-contracts scandal.
