Dramatic changes in “Thermaikos Mafia” case

 

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Fifteen defendants accused of participating in the “Thermaikos mafia” ring involved in money lending, revealed a year ago in Thessaloniki, have been indicted. According to the judicial decree publicized on Wednesday, Markos Karamperis is still considered the mastermind, however his co-defendants have had charges dropped.

The relevant judicial council “dropped” part of charges against the head of the relevant office of SDOE in Thessaloniki, setting bail at 10,000 euros. The SDOE officer, who is accused of money laundering and misconduct, had charges of participating in a criminal organization dropped.

It is noted that in the initial investigation of the 17 witnesses who are referred to being pressured by the loan shark ring, only two insisted upon their accusation. The rest spoke of “arbitrary actions of the police” and “friendly financial assistance” from Markos Karamperis.
