Journalist Vaxevanis acquitted for publishing the Lagarde List


Greek investigative journalist Kostas Vaxevanis charged with the publishing of Lagarde List was cleared of all charges on Wednesday. The Three-Member Misdemeanor Court unanimously declared Vaxevanis innocent despite the prosecutor’s suggestion that the disclosure of the names on the Lagarde List were ‘breach of privacy’.

It is the second time that the court declares Kostas Vaxevanis innocent.

Last year, Vaxevanis published in his magazine HOT DOC the names of more than 2,000 Greeks, holders of bank accounts in HSBC Geneva branch.
