Voulgarakis, Kefalogiannis, Papantoniou and Doukas quizzed asset statements
The parliamentary Examination Committee of party and politicians’ finances has referred former New Democracy minister Mr. G. Voulgarakis to the Appeal court, over his false statement about his assets regarding his wife’s involvement in the “Lagarde List”.
According to the Committee, neither Mr. Voulgarakis nor his wife Mrs. Peleki declared a sum of 117,000 euros, which Mrs. Peleki appears to belong as beneficiary of an off-shore. Mr. Voulgaraki’s explanations were deemed inadequate.
The Committee however was happy with the explanations of New Democracy secretary Em. Kefalogiannis, who proved that an account attributed to his wife in the “Lagarde List” was inherited from his wife’s grandmother and was been declared. The Committee forwarded the case, pointing out that as far as Parliament is concerned, there is no issue.
Regarding former PASOK minister Mr. G. Papantoniou and his wife’s involvement in the “Lagarde List”, the Committee has not yet examined his statement to come to a conclusion. His case will be discussed next week.
In the case of former New Democracy minister Mr. P. Doukas, a one-million euro decrement was noted in his accounts, between 2010 and 2009. The Committee will ask further details on the matter, with Mr. Doukas claiming it was a transaction from a savings to an investment account which has been declared.
