Greek Parliament Vice President Alexis Mitropoulos is being accused of money laundering and tax evasion.
On Tuesday, Greek Economic Prosecutor Ioannis Dragatsis formally asked Greece’s Supreme Court to submit a request to the parliament asking that Mitropoulos be stripped of his parliamentary immunity so that he can be formally charged with the crimes.
Mitropoulos, who is a lawyer, is being accused of not reporting income of around 1 million euros, according to Greek newspaper “Kathimerini.” The accusations stem from an old case where Mitropoulos was being accused of not properly compensating his lawyer colleagues from the approximately 1 million euros earned from a case, and subsequently failing to report this money in his tax reports.
