Georgiou’s case to be discussed by the member states at Eurogroup
Its concern over the decision by an Athens appeals court to convict Greece's former statistics chief expressed the European Commission.

"What is important to [the Commission] is that the independence of ELSTAT is protected in line with the law and that people who do their jobs are also protected in line with the law," Annika Breidthardt, spokeswoman for economic and monetary affairs, repeated at a news conference. "That's why we follow these developments with concern."

The spokeswoman said the case will be examined by member-states at the Eurogroup, adding it is open for an appeal./ΙΒΝΑ
