The general secretary for public revenues, Katerina Savvaidou, appeared before an anti-corruption prosecutor on Tuesday in connection to two different charges of breach of duty.

One of the charges of breach of duty regards Savvaidou’s alleged decision to review a fine of 78 million euros imposed on an IT firm, while a second involved her alleged extension of the time that television channels had to hand over to the state revenues from a special tax on advertisements.

Last week finance minister Euclid Tsakalotos asked Savvaidou to resign.

Sources indicated on Tuesday that Savvaidou would be granted an extension to answer questions regarding both cases.
