Foreign Minister George Papandreou…

Foreign Minister George Papandreou, on a visit to Lithuania, kneels before the snow-covered tomb of his Polish great-great-grandparents, Stanislaw and Cecilia Mineyko. After many adventures, their son Sigmund settled in Greece, where one of his daughters, Sophia, married a fellow Athens Law School student, George Papandreou, the foreign minister’s grandfather. Papandreou yesterday held talks with Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus, focusing on Lithuania’s candidacy to the EU. A Greek prosecutor last Tuesday charged Kokkalis with such espionage, money laundering, fraud, embezzlement and bribery. The 63-year-old billionaire says the charges are a conspiracy by his political enemies and newspapers.
