PANAMA. According tothe Maritime Authority of Panama, the Panamanian Consul in Greece, Antonio Fotis Taquis, has stated that Greece’s Social Security office pointed out inconsistencies in the payment of consulate employee quotas previous to his term, which started in December 2004.
The notice was given as the consul prepared his final report, for which he asked different Greek institutions if there were any pending responsibilities to be taken care of.
The Consulate has hired the services of a Greek accountant and a lawyer, to assist in revising its books.
According to the Consul, they are currently in the final phase of the investigation along with the Greek Social Security.
Fotis Taquis explained that Greece adopted the euro as its legal currency in 2002, and that it also updated the Social Security quotas registration system from a manual to a computerized one, both of which have prolonged the final result of the investigation.
