A Greek Court found ex transport and telecommunications minister (PASOK) Tasos Mandelis guilty on failing to declare the origin of his incomes; contrary to the public prosecutors suggestion of a 4 year imprisonment conviction (non suspendable sentence)  he was convicted on 3 years inprisonment and the execution of the sentence set under suspension. He was additionally fined 15.000 Euro and deprived of his voting rights for a year.

Mr. Mandelis didn’t appear in person in the hearings, showing the traditional respect of the political establishment towards Greek Justice and the the Greek taxpayers.
