ATHENS – Supreme Court Public Prosecutor Xeni Dimitriou on Monday ordered the start of a preliminary investigation into press reports about the alleged mismanagement of funds given to Greece to cope with the refugee and migration crisis.

Dimitriou has instructed the head of the country’s financial prosecutors Marianna Psaroudaki to investigate whether there is any truth to the allegations and whether there are grounds for the state to prosecute.

According to sources, Psaroudaki has already summoned witnesses to testify, including the head of the migration policy ministry’s reception and identification service, Lieutenant General Andreas Iliopoulos. An interview given by Iliopoulos was among the press articles that prompted the launch of the investigation.
