Onassis Heir’s Dad Sues for Slander

October 26, 1998

ATHENS, Greece (AP) _ The bitter battle over the $600 million Onassis fortune raged Monday with a slander lawsuit filed by the father of 13-year-old heiress Athina Roussel.

Thierry Roussel sued Stelios Papadimitriou, one of the four Greek trustees of the Onassis Foundation, which operates the Onassis shipping enterprises and a large charitable trust.

Roussel accuses Papadimitriou of calling him an embezzler. On Friday, Roussel has to present himself in court after the four trustees sued him for slander, alleging he accused them of mismanagement and nepotism.

The foundation administers the money until Athina reaches her 18th birthday.
