Yiannos Papantoniou (Greek: Γιάννος Παπαντωνίου; born 27 July 1949) was a member of the National Parliament in Greece (MP) from 1988 to 2007,[1] Minister of National Defense (2001−03), Minister of Economy and Finance (1994−2001).[2] During his time as Economy and Finance Minister, he worked closely with his Economic and Financial Affairs Council partners to prepare for the launch of the Euro in Greece. For his achievements he was 'highly commended' by Euromoney magazine in September 1998 as Finance Minister of the Year. Prior to this, Papantoniou worked at the OECD (1978–81), served as a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from 1981 to 1984, and as Advisor to the Greek Prime Minister on EEC Affairs and Integration. He was elected as chairman of the board of Governors of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in 1999. From 2009 to 2010, he was Visiting Senior Fellow in the Hellenic Observatory within the European Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Papantoniou has published numerous articles and books on topics related to economic and political developments in Greece, Europe and the wider world scene. In November 2014, Papantoniou was convicted by an Athens court of failing to declare 1.2 million euros in a Swiss bank account held under his wife's name. In July 2017, he has filed an appeal to the European court of human rights against this decision.

He is currently the President of the Centre for Progressive Policy Research (KEPP), an independent think-tank.[2]

On 24 October 2018, upon decision of the prosecuting authorities, Papantoniou and his wife were detained and sent to Korydallos prison, pending their trial for grave corruption and money-laundering charges, the losses for the Greek State being estimated at 400 million Euro.[3]
