THE Nasos Iliopoulos said that “yesterday the Institutions and Transparency Committee”, as “a series of political officials who were appointed and responsible for the EYP, argued that they cannot say anything because they have confidentiality”. “So how are we going to find out the truth, as the government says?” he noted.
His representative SYRIZA pointed out that there are two issues. The first, he said, is why he was monitored Mr. Androulakis. “The national security argument tells us nothing. We are not in times of “nationalism”, when political opponents were suspected of their nationalism and watched.
Unless Mr. Mitsotakis considers that the Nikos Androulakis he is an agent of foreign interests,” he commented, speaking to the “OPEN” television station.
He added that the second issue “is who are the other political figures being monitored”, commenting that “when Kathimerini writes that seven others are being monitored and the government does not deny it, this means that they have simply found two “auto-drivers” – the former its commander EYP and the prime minister’s nephew – and whatever else comes up they will put it on them.” However, he added, “Mr. Demiris, the new commander of the EYP, reportedly said yesterday that the prime minister is being informed about all surveillance.”
Mr. Iliopoulos emphasized that “here and now the obligation of the EYP to inform the ADAE must be reinstated and therefore the ADAE can inform the citizens about surveillance cases”.
He claimed that “Mr. Mitsotakis he claims for himself the privilege of not being audited” and underlined that “but this does not exist in the Republic, Mr. Mitsotakis will be audited”.
He commented that “it is of little importance if Mr. Karamanlis calls Mr. Mitsotakis a political fool – because that’s what he said” and added that “Mr. Mitsotakis is a political corpse, whose stench suffocates society. And that’s why we have to go to elections.”
He mentioned that the Prime Minister he said to Parliament that elections mean two to three months of instability, commenting that thus Mr. Mitsotakis “he admits that the ND vote is a vote of instability, and that’s because he is now completely isolated.” He claimed that “the only possible ally he has left is Mr. Velopoulos.” “From our side, we say that the country can have a progressive government from the first ballot with simple proportionality,” he emphasized.
