Last two witnesses give evidence in Greek soccer corruption trial

AEK soccer club chairman Dimitris Melissanidis was on Tuesday the latest witness to be called to give evidence as part of a trial into corruption in the sport.

The businessman was the penultimate witness.

His testimony is due to be followed on Wednesday by lawyer Alexis Kougias, who also has a long involvement in club ownership.

After that, anti-corruption magistrate Giorgos Andreadis is due to begin calling the 16 defendants to give evidence.

Seven of them face charges of forming a criminal organization that aimed to affect the outcome of matches.
