 Thessaloniki court hands ex-mayor life sentence over embezzlement

A Thessaloniki criminal court on Wednesday ruled that the city's former mayor, Vassilis Papageorgopoulos, is guilty of embezzling almost 18 million euros from municipal coffers over the course of his two terms in office, handing him a sentence of life in prison.

Per Wikipedia... Thessaloniki, as known as Thessalonica, is the second largest city in Greece and capital of the region of Central Macedonia. It is considered to be Greece's cultural capital. The earliest known letter by Paul the Apostle was written to the early Christian church in Thessaloniki.

Mayor Papageorgopoulos won two medals at the European Indoor Championships as well as the bronze medal in the 100 meters at the 1971 European Championships in Athletics. He practiced dentistry until 1981, when he was elected as a member of the Greek Parliament.
