Senior EPO officials to stand trial for financial felonies


The president of the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO), Giorgos Girtzikis, and five other soccer officials will stand trial for financial felonies, according to local media reports Tuesday.

A prosecutor recommended Tuesday that the EPO strongman should be held accountable for financial losses incurred by the federation, amounting to around 29 million euros, which it paid out to a company as part of a deal to issue compulsory health cards to professional soccer players which was never fully implemented according to plan.
