ABSTRACT
THE retrial of a Greek magazine editor who revealed the names of more than 2,000 alleged tax cheats has been postponed until October. Kostas Vaxevanis is accused of violating privacy laws when he published the details of wealthy Greeks with a com-bined approximate sum of €2billion in HSBC bank accounts in Switzerland. The list contains the names of prominent business figures and two former ministers who have allegedly avoided paying tax, as well as civil servants, housewives, students studying abroad and pensioners. Failure to pay tax is widely seen as a root cause of the debt-stricken country's financial woes. Mr Vaxevanis, 46, a father of two, was acquitted in November but the prosecutor's office in Athens ordered a retrial, which began yesterday. Mr Vaxevanis, who edits the investigative Hot Doc weekly magazine, faces two years in jail if convicted.
