Arrest Ordered for Greek Publisher Over Classified Documents Leak

ATHENS – Greece’s Supreme Court’s prosecutor ordered the arrest of a newspaper owner after publication of confidential documents prohibited by law and wants an investigation into how it happened.

The documents, said Kathimerini, came from the embattled National Intelligence Service (EYP) which said it has tapped the phones of 15,475 people in the national interest but it wasn’t said what the papers contained.

But the publisher of Bam sto Reportaz, the newspaper that leaked documents linked to EYP’s surveillance log, will be detained, the report said as a spyware and phone tapping scandal engulfed Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ government.

Supreme Court prosecutor Isidoros Dogiakos is conducting a probe into leaks concerning EYP’s surveillance of European lawmaker and PASOK opposition leader Nikos Androulakis, as well as financial journalist Thanasis Koukakis.
