Martinis convicted for money laundering
An Athens court on Wednesday handed down a 10-year suspended sentence to Andreas Martinis, the former chairman of Athens's Henry Dunant Hospital, and his wife after finding them guilty of money laundering.
The conviction relates to the 3.1 million German marks (1.58 million euros) that Martinis was said to have been paid by the company Hospitalia International as part of a deal to upgrade the Dunant's equipment.
The pair were banned from leaving the country and must report regularly to their local police station.
In February Martinis was given a seven-year suspended sentence following his conviction for offering "free medical treatment" to prominent individuals.
