Greek ex-minister found guilty in corruption case
ATHENS (AP) - A former Greek defence minister was found guilty of money laundering on Monday in the most prominent corruption case to date in the financially-stricken country.
An Athens court found Akis Tsochadzopoulos, a prominent figure in past Socialist governments, guilty along with 16 of his 18 co-defendants, including his wife, ex-wife and daughter, after a five-month trial.
He has spent nearly a year and a half in jail in pre-trial detention, as had his wife, daughter and other close associates.
Sentencing was expected by Tuesday.
