A proposal to file criminal charges for passive bribery and money-laundering against former PASOK defence minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos will be submitted by the ruling PASOK party, while at the same time the party proposed a simultaneous confiscation of his assets, sources said on Monday.
All the members of the Parliamentary preliminary examination committee investigating the German submarines case have been briefed since early on Monday about PASOK’s proposal, while efforts focus on reaching a joint decision that will bear the signatures of as many political parties as possible.

A committee meeting was held on Monday afternoon. 

On its part, main opposition New Democracy (ND) party backed the proposal by ruling PASOK to bring criminal charges against Tsohatzopoulos, while further suggesting that his indictment include espionage charges, namely, violating the law on the disclosure of state secret.
