(ANSAmed) - ATHENS - The Greek parliament is set to vote on the so-called 'Lagarde list' - a list of Greek citizens with bank accounts in Switzerland suspected of having evaded taxes, early next week. Following a decision by Greece's pro nazi Golden Dawn party to support Anexartiti Ellines in requesting a probe into the activities of former Prime Ministers Giorgos Papandreou and Lucas Papademos, four secret ballots are scheduled. One will decide on whether to investigate former Finance minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou, and is backed by three of the government coalition parties. Another shines the spotlight on his successor in Lucas Papademos' government, Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos and is backed by Greece's main opposition party Syriza. And two more will focus on the former Prime Ministers.

"As Prime Ministers Giorgos Papandreou and Lucas Papademos were aware of everything related to the management of the 'Lagarde list' on the part of the two finance ministers. They did nothing to clean it up or shed light on the archive containing 2062 personal names", Anexartiti Ellines said in his request for an investigation.(ANSAmed).
