Antonis Kantas, a former Greek government official who admitted taking €13.7 in bribes more than ten years ago to wave through arms contracts, has returned €7 million of the money to the state, the finance ministry said on 31 December 2013.

Spiegel Online International reported on the 20 January 2014 that Greek prosecutors had arrested two more people during the previous week, suspected of having taken bribes from German armaments firms during the last decade.

The detentions were seen as the latest in the country's intensified efforts to go after corrupt, high-ranking officials.
