Greek Parliament Widens Probe Against Former Finance Minister

Greek lawmakers voted to widen charges against former Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou concerning his handling of a list of Greeks with bank accounts in Switzerland.

A total of 234 lawmakers in the 300-seat chamber decided in a secret ballot late yesterday to include criminal breach of trust charges in the investigation, with 21 people voting against. Papaconstantinou is already being investigated for allegedly removing relatives’ names from the list of Greeks at a branch of HSBC Holdings Plc in Geneva.

The so-called Lagarde list is an electronic file of 2,062 people with deposits at the branch that was given to the government in 2010 by France’s then-finance minister, Christine Lagarde. Handling of the list has drawn criticism from opposition parties and lawmakers in Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’s coalition, which holds 167 seats in the chamber.

Papaconstantinou, who negotiated Greece’s first bailout by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund in 2010, denied reports in December that he had altered the list.
