Angela Gerekou, Greece’s deputy tourism minister, resigned from her job. Angela Gerekou, 51, feels guilty and wants to do the right thing after her husband, Tolis Voskopoulos, 70, was exposed as a tax cheat.
Tolis Voskopoulos was a former singer in the 1960s to 1970s. Angela Gerekou was also involved in the entertainment industry as a model and actress. Angela Gerekou had posed for men’s magazines and gained some popularity. She became nationally known in Greece after she posed topless.
Gerekou’s resignation was accepted by the Greek government. The official statement said she resigned due to sensitivity and sensibility. This would save the government from embarrassment. Gerekou said she was not involved in her husband’s tax matters. She said her husband’s problem was used for generalized accusations against the government. She said Voskopoulos’ tax debts were accumulated before they met and married. He owes 5.5 million Euro in unpaid taxes and fines.
Gerekou resigned at the time Greece was having its vacation season. Her resignation could have affected local politics. The government’s austerity measures made the locals angry. Demonstrations were held in Athens against austerity measures.
Many Greek millionaires and billionaires are being targeted in investigations on collectible taxes. In 2010, the country owed 9 billion Euro in debts. The government was trying to recover debts from Angela Gerekou’s husband Tolis Voskopoulos.
