Fraud squad launches investigation after wife of former Pasok minister Yiannos Papantoniou appeared on the infamous Lagarde List which identified around 2,000 Greeks with deposits at a Geneva branch of HSBC. Stavroula Kourakou was found to have allegedly deposited about €1.3m
Former defence and finance minister Yiannos Papantoniou and his wife, Stavroula Kourakou, could be forced to face trial on charges of alleged tax evasion of €3m between 2000 and 2010
This is the same Yiannos Papantoniou who in 2010 said that “Greece lacks a built-in culture of stability and discipline” in an appearance on Al Jazeera English as the Greek sovereign debt crisis was unfolding.
The complete Greek “Lagarde List” which includes Papantoniou’s wife Stavroula Kourakou can be found here.
