Greek tax evasion leak reporter acquitted

A senior journalist in Greece has been found not guilty of breaching privacy for publishing a list of more than 2,000 people who have been using Swiss bank accounts to avoid paying taxes.

The list, published by Costas Vaxevanis, includes the names of politicians and business figures.

It was controversial because of the role tax evasion is thought to have played in weakening the Greek economy.

Mark Lowen reports from Athens.
