Supreme Court Prosecutor Xeni Dimitriou has ordered a probe into a lawsuit filed by former foreign minister Nikos Kotzias for defamation and dissemination of false news aimed at undermining him.
In the lawsuit filed Friday, Kotzias mentions specific media reports that were allegedly designed to intimidate him against concluding name talks with Skopje.
Supreme Court prosecutor Xeni Dimitriou on Monday ordered an investigation into media reports alleging that European Union funds given to Greece for the migration crisis were mismanaged.
