ATHENS – Alex Rondos, a former adviser to PASOK Socialist prime minister George Papandreou, was released on a 50,000-euro bail payment on Sept. 12 after testifying about misuse of funds by the International Mine Initiative (IMI).

The IMI is a non-government organization (NGO) that received 2.3 million euros of public monies for projects for the removal of landmines in Bosnia and Lebanon.

Kathimerini said that Rondos refuted the charges to a magistrate and claimed that his role as head of the Foreign Ministry’s department for international development cooperation did not require him to check the legitimacy of documents for approving funds to NGOs.

He submitted an experts report indicating that the signatures on certain documents approving the release of funding to IMI were forged.
