Greek Authorities Freeze All Assets of Journalist Tragas

ATHENS – All assets of the late celebrity journalist and publisher Giorgos Tragas have been frozen following the order of the Greek Anti-Money Laundering Authority, it was made known on Friday.

The authority’s move is based on a 60-page report on the ways Tragas – a popular TV and radio host who died in December 2021 – amassed his fortune both in Greece and abroad. The authority also forwarded its decision to the financial crimes prosecutor for further action.

Practically speaking, Tragas’ family members and others cannot formally accept any of the assets, as Greek authorities consider them a product of criminal activity and they will face criminal charges under money laundering laws.
