EU Court Says Greece Violated Human Rights of Convicted Statistician

ATHENS – The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) dealt another blow to Greece’s prosecution of Andreas Georgiou, the former head of the country’s statistics agency ELSTAT, ruling that his rights were violated. Georgiou, who reported the country’s dire financial condition leading to three international bailouts, was taken to court and convicted of not properly informing ELSTAT’s board of directors.

Despite being twice cleared and backed by the EU’s statistics agency, he was made a political scapegoat by successive Greek governments. The ECHR ruled in his favor after a Greek court denied his requests to reform a legal question he had raised to the EU Court of Justice.
