Former general secretary for public revenues will not face trial


The former general secretary for public revenues, Katerina Savvaidou, will not face trial on charges of attempted breach of trust, according to a ruling by the council of appeals court judges made public Thursday.

In April a prosecutor had asked for Savvaidou to be tried for breach of trust, a charge aggravated by the provisions of laws against the embezzlement of state funding.

This followed a decision in October 2015 by then anti-corruption prosecutor Eleni Raikou, who brought felony charges against Savvaidou related to a case of breach of duty in connection to her alleged decision to review a fine of 78 million euros imposed on an IT company.
