Former Greek Minister of Transportation, Michalis Liapis, was detained by police on Tuesday for driving an uninsured vehicle with fake registration plates.

Liapis was driving his Volkswagen Touareg jeep when police officers stopped him for a standard check in Artemida, about 30 kilometres from Athens.

During the inspection Liapis, a cousin of former Greek Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis, could not produce his driving license and police reportedly found that his vehicle had fake number plates and no insurance.

A charge has been filed against the former minister at the police station in Ayia Paraskevi, Athens.
