Giorgios Mangakis

Giorgios Mangakis was a criminal-law professor, attorney, and politician born in 1922 in Athens, Greece. When the Greek military regime collapsed in 1974, he returned from exile to Greece and took part in the new government. He was soon elected to the Greek parliament and continued to serve in several roles, including minister of justice, until the 1990s. He died in 2011 at the age of eighty-nine.
