Dora Bakoyannis, the head of the Democratic Alliance party whose husband, Isidoros Kouvelos, transferred 1 million euros in cash abroad last year, wrote to Supreme Court prosecutor Yiannis Tentes on Wednesday over what she described as a “barbaric abuse of the truth.”

The former minister accused Panayiotis Nikoloudis, the head of the country’s anti-money-laundering agency, of being “unfit” for such a “delicate position,” and demanded that a probe be launched into how and why his investigation into MPs’ assets led to Kouvelos.
