Michalis Michailides, the son of former Cyprus Interior Minister Dinos Michailides, was remanded in pretrial custody by an Athens magistrate late on Wednesday in connection with the ongoing money-laundering trial of ex-Defense Minister Akis Tsochadzopoulos (photo).

Both the Cypriot ex-minister and his son are accused of helping the former Greek defense minister hide a trail of millions of euros he received in kickbacks for defense contracts.
