HARDtalk speaks to Greece's former finance minister, George Papaconstantinou. He was handed a list of 2000 possible tax evaders 3 years ago, but did not make it public. When a copy of the list was made public it was missing the names of 3 of his relatives. This was the man who was negotiating Greece's bail out and, with it, imposing massive cut backs in his country. Last month Greece's parliament voted that he should face criminal charges for tampering with the list, for breach of trust and breach of public duty. He says he is innocent, has been framed, and is being made a scapegoat.
