Stavros Papastavrou, the consultant of former PM Antonis Samaras, will face the examiner on Wednesday in order to address changes regarding tax evasions and money laundering, over an account with 5.3 million euros in the “Lagarde list”.
Mr. Papastavrou appears to have opened the account with the British Virgin Island-based Stabri LTD offshore as the beneficiary. Mr. Papastavrou’s parents, who were also included as beneficiaries, have also been summoned (his father has passed away).
So far, the former PM’s aide has claimed that the funds belong to another businessman, who is also included in the Lagarde list, while noting that the acted as an agent with power of attorney. The legal documents however which he has submitted to support his claim appear to be problematic.
