ATHENS — A Cypriot former interior minister and his son have been jailed in Greece on money laundering-linked charges, in connection with a corruption case involving a jailed Greek former defense minister.

An Athens court on Wednesday sentenced Dinos Michailidis, a Cypriot minister in the 1980s and 1990s, and his son Michalis, to 15 years in prison. They denied wrongdoing.

Another two Greeks and a Syrian national received sentences ranging from life in prison to 12 years.

The defendants were accused of laundering, or helping launder bribes connected with armaments deals on behalf of Akis Tsochadzopoulos, formerly a senior official in Greece’s once-dominant Socialist Party who was defense minister from 1996-2001.

Tsochadzopoulos is serving a 20-year sentence in a Greek prison for money laundering.
