Former finance minister Yanis Varoufakis denied media reports on Tuesday that an armed man had entered the apartment building where he lives in Athens and was confronted by a police guard.

In a written statement, Varoufakis dismissed the report as “lies,” adding that he does not have a police guard, or a private one.

“This is just another example of the values crisis afflicting the Greek media,” the statement said.
