Inconvenience for the Greek who bears gifts

News that Achilleas Kallakis has drawn the interest of the Serious Fraud Office (and the media) must be doubly galling for the property tycoon.
Friends recall how he's long argued for draconian privacy laws and wide-ranging restrictions on the press to prevent awful hacks from probing the activities of rich and powerful indivduals - just one example of how Kallakis doesn't always believe that normal rules apply to him.
Another favourite involves a Kallakis flunky handing some punter cash in order to vacate their table in a busy bar, just to allow the boss a seat. Will that Kallakis swagger remain intact now, I wonder?
