A Greek prosecutor has charged three former ministers with failing to properly declare their wealth and revenue in order to avoid tax.
The charges laid Wednesday came two days after another ex-minister, Akis Tsochatzopoulos, received an eight-year jail term for hiding his revenue in the first of a series of trials related to his years in power.
Tsohatzopoulos, 73, has denied the charges and plans to appeal.
The court cases come at a time when Greece is suffering from heavy debt levels and amid tough austerity measures.
