A Supreme Court plenum on Thursday renewed for two years the term of First Instance Court Prosecutor Lampros Patsavellas to Eurojust, the EU judicial cooperation unit based in The Hague.

Patsavellas participated in investigations focusing on Siemens and the purchase of German submarines, coordinating the contacts between the Prosecutor Offices in Athens and Munich.

His term was renewed for two years, following objections raised by Justice Minister Haris Kastanidis to an earlier Supreme Court plenum decision renewing his term for four years.
