The Greek Parliament Calls Former Minister to Report for ‘Vatopedi’

Theodoros Rousopoulos and Alexandros Kontos stated their opinions with the use of memorandums in the Vatopedi case, which is currently discussed in the Parliament, in order to, establish a committee to investigate the possibility of criminal responsibility of ministers and of six former Secretaries of State part of the New Democracy party.
Their memorandums where read by the Chairman of the House, Philip Petsalnikos.
Mr. Roussopoulos, stated that he will not attend the meeting today and continues by saying that, “in our times, few are willing to listen and to follow the torturous path in search of the truth.”
“Generalities and stereotypes that were created in this case prevail over the right and wrong. With respect towards the outcome of this procedure, you should know that I will use all the lawful means, to prove my justice. My ethos and dignity, mark the path of this pursuit as long as it may be.” In this way, Mr. Roussopoulos concludes in his letter.
Mr. Alexandros Kondos, reminds through his memorandum, that he has already stated his position in this case analytically, during the previous session.
With the same letter he expresses his intention not to attend and take part in this process, “because I think this is moving in the emergence of a pre guilty decisions from the part of PASOK, in order to serve as publicity tricks.”
The majority’s rapporteur, Dinos Rovlias, embarked to preempt the accusations made by New Democracy for the “criminalization of politics”, arguing that the party’s proposal to refer the six former ministers, does not doing imply anything as sutch.
“The vote does not imply a criminal conviction. We do not construct guilty personas, but we do not have the right to deprive items of evidence “, said Mr. Rovlias.
“Fellow colleagues must vote according to their conscience- and not according to party conscience,” was Mr. Nikolaos Dentias response.
He openly questioned the intentions of the vote, stressing that if PASOK really wanted to avoid the cover-up, the proposal should include former ministers of it’s own party, such as, G. Drys and A. Fotiadis.
