Tsohatzopoulos claims trial “staged assignation attempt”
The former Minister of National Defense Akis Tsohatzopoulos has characterized his trial as a “staged assassination attempt”, both political and personal, as it targets his family life.
Mr. Tsohatzopoulos spoke of PASOK and New Democracy “manipulating Parliament” and how “they broke the law intentionally”. Mr. Tsohatzopoulos also disputed the corruption charges against him.
The former Minister’s attorney Ioannis Pagoropoulos characterized Parliament’s findings to be “legally unfounded” and “despicable”, despite being signed by 122 MPs. Mr. Tsohatzopoulos’ other attorney, Leonidas Kotsalis, insisted upon summoning the former members of the Government Council on National Defense (KYSEA).
