After the end of the marathon meeting, PASOK – Movement for Change MP Haris Kastanidis spoke of an operation to cover up huge responsibilities in the Institutions and Transparency Committee on the part of the governing majority and witnesses who came forward for the surveillance case.
More specifically, the PASOK-KINAL MP noted:
“I am deeply saddened by what unacceptable happened to the Institutions and Transparency Committee under the sole responsibility of the government. Fortified behind the principle of confidentiality, which does not apply to the Institutions and Transparency Committee, those who came to the hearing refused to provide any information about the cases that have scandalously unfolded in recent months and concern the President of PASOK, the journalist Mr. Koukakis, as well as the monitoring of the KKE call center.
They denied any information in violation of the Constitution and the law, while the Prime Minister himself, as well as government officials, assured that they want full light to be shed on this case. But how can a lot of light be shed, when they all come together in one line and behind the secrecy that does not apply, I repeat against the Institutions and Transparency Committee, they refuse to provide any information? This is an operation to cover up huge responsibilities.”
