The head of the Central Macedonia Regional Authority Panagiotis Psomiadis has been placed on temporary suspension starting from Monday, by order of Decentralised Administration of Macedonia-Thrace General Secretary Thymios Sokos.
Sokos made the decision after receiving an appeals court ruling that found Psomiadis guilty of breach of faith and handed down a one-year jail sentence, suspended for three years.

In the case of temporary suspension, the duties of regional authority head are taken over by his deputy, which in this case is Psomiadis' brother Dionysis
