Former Minister Found Guilty on Two Counts of Breach of Duty

ATHENS – A Special Court for Ministerial Responsibility found former alternate justice minister Dimitris Papangelopoulos guilty of two instances of breach of duty brought against him by Public Prosecutor Eleni Raikou, while clearing Public Prosecutor Eleni Touloupaki and the minister of all charges relating to Touloupaki’s handling of the Novartis case. The court announced its ruling on Saturday.

Papangelopoulos, who served under the SYRIZA-ANEL government, was found guilty of exerting pressure on justice to incriminate politicians in relation to the Novartis case and of putting pressure on a public prosecutor handling the case of former Piraeus Bank chief Michalis Sallas.

He was cleared of charges that he intervened in the cases of businessman Andreas Vgenopoulos and Yiannis Alafouzos and a case involving the journalist Giorgos Papachristou.
