A road traffic police team apprehended former minister Michalis Liapis, having established that his jeep had fake registration plates. Subsequently, the police also established that Liapis had been driving without a driving licence and that the luxury jeep had had no insurance.

The traffic policemen had stopped the vehicle after it had violated the rules of the road. The former minister had not stopped at the "STOP" road sign on Artemidos Avenue and the traffic policemen had stopped him. They had carried out the check on the driver although they had recognized the face of the once powerful minister in the government of New Democracy.
They had established that the registration plates had actually been submitted to the tax authorities and that the vehicle had been banned from circulating. In addition, the vehicle had had no insurance and Michalis Liapis had not had his driving licence on him.

After the arrest the former minister was taken to the local traffic police station in the suburb of Agia Paraskevi which drew up a statement against him.

Michalis Liapis was one of the main ministers in the governments of his cousin Kostas Karamanlis. Ironically, from 2004 to 2007, he headed the Ministry of Transport and Communications and the Ministry of Culture from 2007 to 2009.
