GREECE-CORRUPTION-COURT-POLITICS

A photo taken on July 24, 2004 shows the former Mayor of the Greek northern port city of Thessaloniki Vassilis Papageorgopoulos posing with the Olympic torch during the Athens' 2004 Olympic torch relay. A court in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, on February 27, 2013 handed life sentences to the city's ex-mayor and two other municipal officials in a decade-long embezzlement case, local officials said. Vassilis Papageorgopoulos, 65, was convicted of turning a blind eye to the embezzlement of nearly 18 million euros ($23.5 million) from municipal coffers between 1999 and 2008.
