  • [01] Restrictive measures for former PM's aide

    Yiannis Angelou, the influential aide of former prime minister Costas Karamanlis, was released on bond of 400,000 euros and forbidden from leaving the country after testifying for several hours to special examining magistrate Irene Kalou concerning the Vatopedi monastery land-swaps case.

    Angelou testified on Tuesday and this was the highest amount of bail imposed on any of the others accused in the affair, who have so far been asked to post bail ranging from 30,000 to 100,000 euros.

    The former premier's aide has been accused of moral instigation of breach of faith.
