(Corrects overall revenue target after Finance Ministry rectifies target for 2011 to 1.5 bln euros from 2.5 and for 2013 to 5.9 bln from 5.8)

ATHENS, May 2 (Reuters) - Greece will target 11.8 billion euros in revenues over the next three years with a new anti-tax evasion plan, the government said on Monday.

Greece wants the plan to yield 1.5 billion euros this year, 4.4 billion next year and 5.9 billion euros in 2013, a finance ministry document said.

“Tax evasion is a crime against our country,” Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou told a news conference. “Today we take a step forward, for this year and the two next, to be able to defeat this phenomenon.” (Reporting by Lefteris Papadimas; Writing by Ingrid Melander)
