Papakonstantinou relatives evaded taxes for 6 million euros
According to the findings of SDOE’s investigation, the relatives of former Minister of Finances Giorgos Papakonstantinou appear to have evaded paying taxes on about 6 million euros.
The report shows that the former Minister’s relatives hid and evaded paying taxes on the following sums between 1997 and 2011: Andreas Rossonis and his wife Marina Papakonstantinou hid 1,457,000 and 193,499 euros respectively, while Simeon Sykiaridis and his wife Eleni Papakonstantinou hid 1,666,318 and 2,987,660 euros respectively.
SDOE’s report is important, since it will confirm the possible intent or negligence of the former Minister of Finances in the case regarding the controversial “Lagarde list”. The four have been summoned to testify on Tuesday, however it is likely that they will refuse to appear, s they have done so in the past.
The president of the Parliamentary Committee investigating the scandal Christos Markogiannakis commented on Vima 99.5 that the largest part of the investigation has been complete. He also explained that the Committee will have to finish by the 25th of June.
