Former Samaras Aide Cleared of Charges in Lagarde List Scandal

ATHENS – Stavros Papastavrou, an ex-aide of former conservative prime minister Antonis Samaras, was cleared of all charges in connection with the so-called Lagarde list of wealthy Greek depositors at a Geneva branch of HSBC and other tax avoidance charges.

Speaking outside Greece’s Supreme Court, Papastavrou said he was victim  “political prosecution” due to his collaboration with the conservative party and the ex-premier, reported Kathimerini.

“Justice had its say however despite efforts to manipulate it,” Papastavrou, a lawyer, said. “I waited six difficult years to get justice. And I finally got justice,” he also said.  

In 2016, Papastavrou, a lawyer, was  asked to pay 3.5 million euros ($4.15 million) in taxes in connection to a deposit in his name that was included in the infamous Lagarde list.
