One must never forget that, behind the thin veneer of respectability, virtually every public and financial institution in Greece is tainted by corruption.

That much we have known for a long while, although it is rarely said often enough, especially as it is now apparent that public money (including British contributions) is being used to bail out Greek banks brought down by multi-million frauds.

The latest such was reported in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) on 11 November, but – unsurprisingly – has yet to be given any coverage in the British media, which is always slow to report on international corruption.

We know of old, that this corruption spreads its tentacles into most countries in Europe, and involves senior commission officials, including commission president José Manuel Barroso.

And don't forget that the euro was born in "sin" in more ways than one:

Euro Notes:Bonanza for the Underworld?

Quote:
THE HAGUE— On May 12, 1998, a small package was loaded into the hold of Air France Flight 2522 in Paris bound for Munich. The 1-kilogram parcel had arrived at Charles de Gaulle Airport under armed guard, but once on board it was to travel unescorted. After a 20-minute ground delay, the flight was airborne, touching down in Munich at 7:55 p.m.

The 2-pound package contained a top-secret weapon in the European Central Bank's strategy to combat counterfeiting of euro banknotes, which are set to go into circulation in January 2002. Within the jet's locked hold was a printing plate for embedding a high-security hologram into the new euro bills. The plate was on its way to Munich for the first large-scale test production run.

But the trial never took place. On arrival at Munich, the masterplate had disappeared. Air France officials scoured the hold and the entire Boeing airliner for clues but came up empty.

The heist, which had the scent of an organized crime job, still baffles the authorities three years later.


Still an unsolved crime as far as I know.....

Nothing can surprise me about the corruption and tax avoidance here in Greece. It's a way of life, and I meet examples regularly - with state employees as well as private businesses.

According to an Economist profile (http://cemea.economistconferences.com/c ... vrentiadis) and also this PDF (http://www.ahiworld.com/press_releases/ ... s_bios.pdf) Lavrentiadis has a Ph.D. from a diploma mill. And he is allowed to run banks in Greece?

Just what I needed to read after another day at the coalface. How nice to think of my (and every other chump worker's) taxes being handed to such deserving folk, whilst I/we scrimp and save.

Hurrah for the EU!
