“Justice in Greece”. The phrase has become almost a joke in recent years. Every time we hear or read something related to the judicial system of the country, the older ones wonder why they didn’t leave when they should have and the younger ones think once again that it’s not going any more. How much lower will the “first prerequisite of civilization”, as Freud said, go in order to satisfy interests, pursuits and egos?
Tired you with the prologue, huh? So let’s go to the grill…
*** The deputy prosecutor of the Supreme Court, Christos Bardakis, summons the journalist and publisher of Documento, Costas Vaxevanis and also the journalist, Vangelis Triantis, for “possible commission of the offense of using official secrecy”. How and why? Because they published the conclusive report of the SDOE auditors to the Financial Crimes Prosecutor’s Office regarding the direct assignments of Sofia Nikolaou. For those who do not remember, in the conclusion of the SDOE there was talk of a “loss” of 2 million euros to the State from the assignments of the former general secretary of Anti-Crime Policy, something that also played a catalytic role in her “cutting” from the ND ballots while he had also rented a political office, putting up the relevant sign. Mr. Vardakis therefore asked to investigate how the finding reached the disposal of Documento. Without having any authorization from my dear colleagues, I take the courage and answer: With reports, with phone calls, with information cross-references.
As with all reporting, here at Documento.
*** Because Vaxevanis and Triantis did their job – like few journalists in and out of quotation marks – they are being prosecuted. And because I know, both will continue to do what they know best. Reportage. But if he was one of those who get tired? Of those who don’t want trouble for any reason? What would be the result? Next time shut up? To say “you’re not bored, I’m not messing around”? Oh, Mr. Bardakis, oh, Mr. would-be Bardakis.
*** For the Predator, which has been informed that it was under surveillance no action.
*** And if it was the first time… In general, with the Mitsotakis government, the independent – always – Justice prosecutes or attempts to prosecute those who exposed or tried to expose scandals. This is the most basic component of the Staff State envisioned by Kyriakos Mitsotakis and implemented by Giorgos Gerapetritis. What was the first bill, we said, after the 2019 election? Ah, that the EYP came under the supervision of the prime minister and someone who did not have the qualifications was appointed commander there. Okay…
*** Of legal interest is the Pothen Esches of Andreas Patsis, who participated in not one, not two, but four companies (three Cypriot and one in the UK) abroad, apparently unaware that this is prohibited for members of parliament .
*** For the Pothen Esches of the prime ministerial couple, I can’t write anything. I was stunned by the numbers. As well as from the inheritance received by Makis Voridis. You, again, live with a pass and with prayers that the obscene profit does not increase in basic necessities, in fuel, in telecommunications, in energy.
*** The Pothen Esches of Alexis Tsipras, who still owns the BMW motorcycle, 650 c.e., is also of interest. My friend told me that it costs more to pay the accountant to prepare your Statement of Assets than the machine.
*** And should I ask something else? Why did we say that the adult children of MPs, MEPs, party finance officers, mayors and regional governors do not file Pothen Eschesh?
*** Almost 7 million euros are owed to banks by the 62 members of the cabinet. The champion is Christos Stylianidis, who owes 1.5 million euros.
*** “The Athenians will cry a black tear for their choice”, said Adonis Georgiadis about Harry Doukas. One is ranked in the top 2% of the most interactive scientists worldwide, according to Harvard, and the other is Adonis Georgiadis…
*** And now silence to listen to Nikos Plakias, the father of the twin girls who disappeared in Tempi. “As you measure, so shall you be counted,” he said to… we can only imagine who.
