ATHENS – The leader of the far right-wing Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) is expected to resign after it was reported he was the subject of a kickbacks probe.

Giorgos Karatzaferis, whose party crumbled around him with defectors fleeing to the ruling New Democracy Conservatives, was linked to a reported investigation that 1.65 million euros was paid into two offshore firms linked to him and his relatives.

The former New Democracy MP, who participated in a coalition government in 2011-12, denied any knowledge of the people mentioned in the report in Real News though he did not deny a link to the offshore firms.

With regard to what has been reported in Real News, I state that I have absolutely no knowledge of the individuals mentioned,” said the LAOS leader.

The report alleges that payments were made by two businessmen acting as middlemen in the sale of Super Puma helicopters to Greek authorities. A probe is expected to focus on Karatzaferis’s source of wealth (“pothen esches”) forms.
