Greek Lawmakers Consider Tax Investigation of Officials

Politicians don't play by the rules they make? Shocking!


Greek MPs are set to vote on whether to investigate high-ranking former ministers over the alleged mishandling of evidence of tax evasion.

The three parties in coalition government are expected to back an investigation into former Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou.

He is accused of removing his relatives from a list of potential suspects.

But the opposition also want two former prime ministers and the Socialist Party leader investigated.
