A deputy bank director in Greece’s National Bank was arrested for bribery on Thursday, after he took cash from a businessman to facilitate the release of EU funds which had been approved, police said.

Authorities also arrested two officers of the financial crimes unit (SDOE), an employee of the General Secretariat for Revenues and the banker’s wife in connection with the case.

The banker was caught receiving 3,000 euros from a businessman in order to release NSRF funds which had been approved, but which he could not collect because of debts owed by the man’s deceased father.

Police is expected to make announcements while the bank has also launched an investigation.
