Lagarde List

There is an explosive tax scandal in Greece at the moment - it follows from the so-called Lagarde List - a dossier of suspected tax evaders with Swiss bank accounts, it was passed by the then French finance minister, Christine Lagarde to her Greek counterpart George Papaconstantinou in 2010.

It seems that three of his relatives were on that list, but at some stage were removed from it. It puts Papaconstantinou at the centre of this scandal.

Papaconstantinou's "attempts to cover up what he did was almost comical" a local Athenian said, but added "now the political system has found the perfect scapegoat".
It is another world...
