Nine arrested for illegally issuing driver licences
Police have arrested nine individuals alleged to be involved in the illegal issue of driving licences by the transport ministry service in south Athens.
The case was uncovered by the Police Internal Affairs Department a year ago, following a lengthy investigation.
Among those implicated in the case are seven civil servants and two driving instructors.
The suspects accepted bribes to issue licences without the recipient of the licences passing a test or even being present.
