(AP) Greek court authorities say four relatives of a former minister are missing from a list of Greeks with Swiss bank accounts that authorities are using to investigate possible tax evasion.

Greece originally obtained the list from French authorities in 2010, based on data concerning 24,000 HSBC customers in Switzerland that the bank reported stolen, but only started investigating recently.

Prosecutors this month asked for the original again from France, fearing their copy might have been doctored. Athens obtained the list again last week.

A court official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said four names, linked to two accounts, were on the new list but not the previous version. The ex-minister to whom the people were related was not formally identified.
