Greek economic prosecutors carried out a surprise raid in the UBS bank offices in Athens. During the inspection, they identified about 200 Greek citizens with large deposits in the bank. According to the Greek media, their names are on the list that the economic authorities of the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia have recently sent to the Greek Ministry of Finance.

The Greek authorities raided the bank's offices on Friday evening and, according to sources, they confiscated computer hard disks and documents from both the bank branch and the office of a prominent Greek broker who cooperated with the bank. The seized documentation contained bank account numbers, names and amounts.

According to sources, the smallest bank deposit of the identified 200 Greek citizens amounts to 1.5 million euro and the highest 12 million euro. The investigation took place by order of economic Prosecutor Panagiotis Athanasiou and was implemented by prosecutors Yiannis Dragatsis, Eleni Touloupaki, Christos Tzouras.

A legal order is to be adopted in the coming days, which will enable the investigated depositors to declare the amounts and pay the taxes due to avoid the imposition of heavy fines and detailed inspections.
