“The decision of the judicial council is a stumbling block in the Mitsotakis government’s attempt to instrumentalize the justice system and turn the Novartis scandal into a so-called scam,” SYRIZA-PS press representative Nasos Iliopoulos underlines in a taped statement.
“No one is cited for their handling of the Novartis case, while the journalists are not even cited, whose guilt for their alleged participation in a conspiracy was announced by Mr. Mitsotakis himself from the floor of the parliament,” he notes, saying that the prime minister is “heavily exposed”.
“The Novartis scandal is now, even with the stamp of Justice, existing. The attempt to cover it up has failed miserably”, states N. Iliopoulos and concludes:
“The day the country gets rid of the Mitsotakis government will be a good day for the rule of law and democracy. Because the way will be reopened for justice and the Novartis scandal that has so damaged the public interest.”
