The so-called “Lagarde List” – the name given by the Greek press to a list containing 1,991 names of wealthy, Swiss-bank-account-possessing Greeks who are being investigated for corruption and tax evasion – is causing a major stir in Greece right now.
Since Friday, two men on the list have turned up dead in apparent suicides.
Here is what has happened in the past few days.
Last Tuesday, October 3, the “Lagarde List” was passed to Greek prime minister Antonis Samaras from PASOK party leader and former finance minister Evangelos Venizelos.
Apparently, it had been “missing,” according to a Financial Times article from a few days prior, and current finance minister Yannis Stournaras had vowed to track it down.
