Here is the full statement:

“The abuse of the rule of law by the Mitsotakis regime, with the surveillance of journalists and politicians, brutally insults our democracy.

Something that cannot be tolerated.

This is not a big and unforgivable mistake. This is a mega scandal and inexcusable establishment arrogance, from a prime minister who thought no one could control him.

And when it was revealed, both he and his associates deliberately lied to cover themselves. And today he continues with lie upon lie.

That he allegedly did not know, while he himself changed the law so that ADAE was not allowed to tell someone that he was being monitored, and that too as soon as the first complaint became known to him.

He did not know, while he himself had assumed the responsibility of EYP from the first day. Did he not even know what he was legislating? Who can believe him?

But even if one believes him, his inadequacy is dangerous for democracy. He is not just politically accountable, he is also morally exposed. And no hypocritical apology can erase the trauma it has inflicted on the democratic functioning of the state.

Instead of apologies and lies, let him tell us the whole truth even now.

Which other politicians and journalists were monitored by the regime he attempted to set up.

In any case, let him know that the truth will come out.

It is a matter of freedom and security.

It’s a matter of democracy.

As far as we are concerned, we will do everything in our power, today as an opposition, but also tomorrow as a progressive government, so that the responsibilities are assigned and there is a democratic reform of the EYP regime.

With a majority of democratic logic and institutional sensitivity, which the country needs. Because the Rule of Law in the Hellenic Republic is a non-negotiable conquest”.
