The son of former Cypriot Interior Minister Dinos Michailides, who is on trial for money laundering in arms deals involving Greece’s ex-Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos, has been seriously injured in an attack in southern Athens.
Marios Michailides suffered a head injury and broken ribs when three men attacked him at a hotel in Palaio Faliro on Tuesday.
A coroner found signs that there had also been an attempt to strangle Michailides.
Police have asked for CCTV footage from the hotel and neighboring buildings.
The ex-minister’s other son, Michalis, is also on trial in Athens for money laundering. He completed his testimony on Wednesday. His father concluded on Monday.
