Corruption prosecutor to remain another two years

Raikou was appointed corruption prosecutor in April 2013 to boost efforts to plow through a multitude of cases of alleged graft and mismanagement and has been instrumental in getting former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos to face justice for siphoning millions of euros in kickbacks for defense contracts.
