A criminal appeals court on Wednesday rejected a third appeal for early release by former defense minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos, who is serving a 20-year sentence for money laundering at Attica’s high-security Korydallos Prison.

Tsochatzopoulos’s lawyers have asked for the early release of their 77-year-old client, citing health problems and saying that they fear for his life.
