3 former Greek ministers charged under asset laws
Athens: Three Greek former cabinet ministers have been charged with alleged breaches of wealth declaration laws, amid a crackdown on former public officials by judicial authorities in the recession-mired country.
Wednesday`s charges come two days after Socialist ex-defense minister Akis Tsochadzopoulos was jailed for eight years over inaccurate income declarations.
Athens prosecutors have now brought similar charges against Yiannos Papantoniou, a Socialist and former defense and finance minister, and Giorgos Voulgarakis, a former public order and culture minister, and former deputy finance and foreign minister Petros Doukas of the conservative New Democracy party.
Those two mainstream parties successively governed Greece for the past four decades, and are widely blamed for the country`s acute financial woes.
