Authorities raid home of former protected witnesses in Novartis case

Anticorruption prosecutors on Thursday raided the home of professor Nikos Maniadakis, formerly protected witness on the Novartis investigation case, looking for data on illegal money transfers.

According to sources, the raid is related to a criminal prosecution ordered against him for allegedly receiving 120,000 euros in bribes from Novartis.

In statements to Skai TV on Wednesday, Maniadakis denied the charges, saying that the charge was based on the deposition of one of the other two protected witnesses whose identity he knows through an administrative error.
