Former Minister of Finance Giorgos Papaconstantinou is to appear before an emergency session of the parliamentary committee probing his handling of the so-called Lagarde list of wealthy Greeks on Monday in order to receive a copy of the case file so he can prepare to testify before the panel.

In a fiery speech before Parliament on Thursday, which preceded a vote by MPs to widen the scope of a criminal investigation into his handling of the list, Papaconstantinou said he would respond to questions by the committee if he is given time to peruse the case file.
