According to “Proto Thema” newspaper, the nephew and a cousin of former deputy Minister of Economy, Mrs. Nandia Valavani, made withdrawals of thousands of euros, just one day before the capital controls.

It has to be mentioned that Mrs. Valavanis’s mother had also made a withdrawal of 200.000 euros, but former minister had denied everything (see here).

One of her relatives managed to make a withdrawal of 120.000 euros, just one day before the closing of the banks.

Mrs. Valavani insists that she never informed any of her relatives for the capital controls, in order to withdraw their money.
