Finance ministry rejects press reports on Greek deposits of billions of euros into Swiss banks

A report in “Der Spiegel” alleging that Greek deposits into Swiss banks are estimated at roughly 600 billion euros was rejected as an “exaggeration” by a Greek finance ministry general secretary on Tuesday.

Speaking on an Athens radio station, the finance ministry official stressed that the deposits into Greek banks are roughly 230 billion euros, while the Greek deposits into Swiss banks are no more than 150 billion euros, underlining that upon deposit the money had been checked to ensure that it was not illegally made.
