Businessman Pavlos Psomiadis, president of the Aspis Group, was arrested late Tuesday night after a warrant was issued by an examining magistrate who has been assigned the case file pertaining to a fraud case against Aspis Capital investors.

The case file was compiled after completion on Tuesday of an examination of lawsuits lodged by Aspis Capital 65 investors , and the prosecutor's office filed felony charges of fraud and money laundering ('legitimisation of revenues from illegal activity") against Psomiadis.

The arrest warrant was issued on suspicion that the businessman would not respond to a summons to appear before the examining magistrate and would flee abroad.

Psomiaidis was led before an examining magistrate on Wednesday morning, whom he asked for and received a stay of testimony to Friday. The businessman has been remanded in custody until his testimony.
