European politician Eva Kaili, who is suspected of involvement in corruption in Belgium, will now be investigated in Greece.
On Thursday, the State Radio and Television Corporation reported that the Public Prosecutor’s Office had submitted an urgent request for preliminary investigations. It added that the precondition was that it not duplicate the investigations or contradict the work of the Belgian investigators. Specifically, it must go into money laundering and bribery. The Belgian authorities were said to have been asked to cooperate and send the files.
The Greek assets of Eva Kylie, her parents and her sisters were frozen last Monday by order of the Greek anti-money laundering authority. Since then, the authorities and the media have been scrutinizing Kylie’s possessions.
Did a deal happen?
Among other things, she is said to have bought a small house three years ago for about 260,000 euros in a rather expensive suburb of Psychikou in Athens. According to the media, real estate agents estimated the apartment at no less than 600,000 euros. The question now is whether Kaili made a deal with the seller and flowed in money beyond the official sales value.
In addition to potential apartments, houses and accounts, the real estate company that Kylie opened with her partner in Athens last month should also be a focus. According to her lawyer, the company was not yet commercially active.
