ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek lawmakers have voted to indict a former finance minister over his handling of data on Greeks with Swiss bank accounts.
A panel of senior judges will determine in coming days whether George Papaconstantinou should face trial on criminal charges of alleged breach of duty and tampering with a document.
A majority of lawmakers voted early Tuesday to lift Papaconstantinou's immunity from prosecution over the fate of a list of about 2,000 names provided by French authorities in 2010 as Greece's economy was struck by a major crisis.
Greek authorities failed to investigate the data for potential tax evasion, and the names of three of Papaconstantinou's relatives were allegedly removed from the list.
Speaking in Parliament Monday, Papaconstantinou denied wrongdoing, arguing he was the victim of a smear campaign.
