Greek ship proprietor and soccer membership proprietor Vangelis Marinakis says drug-trafficking fees in opposition to him are a part of a government-led “conspiracy” to silence dissent.
Marinakis, who can also be a media proprietor, accuses the federal government of concentrating on him by means of pleasant media, placing strain on convicts to testify in opposition to him and accuses Greek judges of doing the federal government’s bidding.
A prosecutor on Friday charged Marinakis for participating in drug-related felony exercise. The costs stem from the 2014 seizure within the Greek port of Piraeus of a tanker carrying 2.1 tons of heroin.
Marinakis has been implicated by, amongst others, a businessman in whose home police seized 30 million euros ($37 million) value of heroin and who now’s serving life in jail.
Marinakis owns the Greek soccer membership Olympiakos and the English membership Nottingham Forest.
