Greek Finance Ministry's Employees Accused of Tax Evasion

civil servantsGreek authorities have found 143 employees of the Finance Ministry who had deposits amounting to 32 million euros in Swiss, German, British and Cypriot bank accounts.
The audits began when the Minister of Administrative Reform, Kyriakos Mitsotakis requested the close examination of the assets of all public sector officials, who appear to have transferred over 100,000 euros to banks abroad, from 2009 onwards.
The Greek judicial authorities have already opened a disciplinary proceeding against five employees who are accused of breach of duty and indecent conduct while the public prosecutor has launched an investigation to detect further possible criminal offenses.
Greece ‘s financial crimes squad, SDOE, after the lifting of banking secrecy has revealed several deposits exceeding 100,000 euros and an extremely “interesting” case of a tax collector who had sent abroad about 1,200,000 euros.
Moreover, audits carried out by the General Inspector of Public Administration and the Inspectors-Controllers Body for Public Administration detected 50 city planners who had sent abroad remittances of 12 million euros.
Minister of Administrative Reform appears determined to eliminate tax evasion. “Everyone must realize that the days of everyone doing as they please, without reporting to anyone, are over,” he has stated.
