    A journalist who published the names of wealthy Greeks who supposedly have Swiss bank accounts appeared in court in Athens on Thursday.

    Costas Vaxevanis is accused of breach of privacy and faces up to three years in prison if found guilty.

    Lawyers defending him are sidestepping a strike by legal workers in Greece, who include judges unhappy with the government's austerity measures.
