Two priests sentenced for embezzling 930,000 euros from state
Two priests in Farsala, central Greece, have been sentenced to 18 and six years behind bars respectively, after they were found guilty of embezzling 930,000 euros from the Greek state through a scheme that involved forged salary lists for priests.
The fraud was discovered following an inspection carried out by a Finance Ministry unit in Thessaly in 2012.
The two priests, one of whom was already in prison, were also ordered to pay 710,000 and 220,000 euros, respectively, to the state in damages.
