ATHENS – Vicky Stamati, the wife of jailed former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos, has asked again to be released from prison on house arrest so she can take her son to school.

Stamati, implicated in the multi-million euro scheme Tsochatzopoulos concocted to steal from defense contracts and launder the illicit proceeds, had escaped from a psychiatric prison this spring and was found sitting on a bench.

Her lawyer said she should be released because she’s a mother, desperate to see her son, and has “suicidal tendencies,” which he said were grounds enough for her to be let on the promise not to run. Greece does not yet have a bracelet monitoring system.

Frangiskos Ragousis said Stamati “is not looking to have fun or socialize” but to be permitted to take her son to school. He didn’t say whether she wants other leniency to leave her house or will stay there otherwise.

Stamati last month escaped from the Dromokaitio Hospital, a psychiatric clinic where she has been receiving treatment for depression.

Addressing the court on May 20, she said, “It is a great feat that I am here today and that I came on the previous occasions,” noting that she had been at the clinic for 522 days following a year-and-a-half at Attica’s high-security Korydallos Prison.
