COURT OF APPEAL CLEARS CARLYLE PARTNER

 

A former Partner of Carlyle, the global alternative asset management company, was acquitted on 8.12.2022 by the Court of Appeal Athens on charges of tax fraud in connection with  a Greek chemicals distribution company which had been acquired by Carlyle back in 2008.

The Court relied on a series of decisions by adminitrative courts in parallel proceedings, which had ruled that the tax authorities failed to follow the appropriate procedures during a books and records audit of the acquired company.

Ilias Anagnostopoulos and Jerina Zapanti adviced and represented the former Carlyle Partner during pretrial and trial proceedings.
