A high-ranking official of a Piraeus Bank branch in Larissa is being investigated by internal auditors for the embezzlement of an estimated 3 million euros from 30 closed accounts.
According to bank sources, the official was believed to have been regularly drawing various sums of money from the closed accounts of 30 customers.

The case came to light when one of the customers found suspicious transactions in his account.

The internal audit, which is continuing, led to the bank official, while the bank returned the withdrawn money to the customers' accounts.

The official will face prosecution on embezzlement charges.
