Romanian former state minister George Copos on Monday was indicted along with other 12 people on charges of money laundering and forgery in the "lottery" file.

Copos, majority holder in FC Rapid Bucharest football club, is accused for actions he took as Board Chairman of company "Ana Electronic" and as major shareholder of Ana Grup, the Anticorruption Department said in a statement.

One of Copos' companies, Ana Electronic, allegedly sold real estate properties to the National Lottery in 2004 at prices which differed from the ones the company declared to the fiscal authority, anti-corruption prosecutors said, cheating the state out of some EUR1 million in taxes.

In the same file, former Communications Minister Sorin Pantis is accused of shady market operations.
