The two prosecutors heading the judicial task force charged with fighting tax evasion in Greece have resigned, accusing the governing coalition of trying to sideline them.
Grigoris Peponis and Spiros Mouzakitis say the government is "attempting to replace and get rid of" them with a new draft law that would appoint a high court prosecutor in their stead.
In a letter Wednesday, the prosecutors insisted that they had served their mission with full dedication.
The finance and justice ministries said the draft plan for the prosecutors' replacement was meant to improve the task force's functioning.
Tax evasion is rampant in debt-crippled Greece, despite successive government pledges to fight it.
