Siemens: K. Skandalides Testifies to Inquiry Committee

Former PASOK minister Kostas Skandalides appeared Friday before the inquiry committee investigating the Siemens cash-for-contracts scandal out of his own free will. It was a press report whereby he had received a non-paper by Mihalis Christoforakos on why US company SAIC and Siemens should undertake the C4I system in 2003 that urged him to do so.
Shortly before entering the committee to testify, Skandalides told reporters that his signature on the C4I agreement was but typical. Commenting on the “non-paper,” he said that “We could have received a non-paper, I honestly don’t remember. But a non-paper is not bribe. I had no financial transactions with no one.”
In the meantime, charged with breach of trust, OTE Chairman and Ceo Panagiotis Vourloumis and Technical Network Director Giorgos Ioannides were referred to the criminal bench of the Athens Court of Appeal. The charges have to do with the overpriced contracts OTE signed with companies, including Intracom and Siemens from 2003 to 2007.
