The reason for veto of Abank's sale to Alpha Bank Pavlos Apostolides managed the Greek Intelligence Agency between 1999 and 2004. When it was revealed that a former intelligence officer was among the bank management, BRSA (Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency) did not let the sale of Abank to the Greek Alpha Bank upon a letter from MİT (National Intelligence Agency).
The spy indicated as the reason for BRSA's prevention in the sale of Abank turned out to be the former chairman of the Greek Intelligence Agency EYP, Pavlos Apostolides. The spy who was retired in 2004 was assigned as the independent member of the board of directors in Alpha.
It has turned out that the major figure of the spy scandal revealed when BRSA (Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency) did not let the sale of Abank to the Greek Alpha Bank is Pavlos Apostolides, assigned at the top level of Greek Intelligence Agency (EYP) between 1999 and 2004. Pavlos Apostolides is the inactive independent member of the board of directors of Alpha Bank.
The general manager of Alpha Bank confirmed that the mentioned member of the board of directors was Pavlos Apostolides, the former chairman of Greek Intelligence Agency: "Mr. Apostolides is a diplomat. He was assigned as the chairman of EYP for a while. However, BRSA has not informed about the reason for its decision. Within this framework, I can neither comment nor inform on this issue."
