A Greek appeals court on Monday confirmed the acquittal of a journalist over the publication of leaked Swiss bank account data in a case that has deeply embarrassed the government.
"The decision was to acquit," Costas Vaxevanis, the publisher of investigative magazine Hot Doc, told reporters.
"This is a vindication for us," he added.
Vaxevanis was charged last year for publishing an alleged copy of the "Lagarde list", a confidential document on possible tax dodgers, triggering charges of press censorship by Greek authorities.
