Police caught three youth with drugs exiting his home
The vice-president of the Council of State, Greece’sSupreme Administrative Court, Panagiotis Efstratiou, submitted his resignation after his involvement in a drug case with 3 foreign youth.
Mr. Efstratiou points out that he resigned to defend the court’s prestige, although he does not accept the accusations leveled against him.
Efstratios’s resignation was filed last Friday, despite the fact that both the Ministry of Justice and the leadership of the Council of State either declared ignorance or did not respond to questions from journalists.
The judge was involved in a case of cocaine use by three youth in the southern suburbs of Athens in the apartment building where he lives.
A police officer alerted his colleagues that young people were moving suspiciously in an area of the southern suburbs and a search was carried out by DIAS men on these young people, in whose possession a quantity of cocaine was found.
Police then searched the house where the judge was staying and found remnants of the same drug in a bottle.
