Real Estate Scandal Summons Former PM Karamanlis to Testify

By Paris Karagounis
The former MP George Voulgarakis’ wife, Aikaterini Peleki was called on Monday by the 13th parliamentary committee.  The committee investigates the exchange of land between the corporation responsible for the use of the Greek state’s land and the Monastery of Vatopaidi.  Many experts believe the Greek state has lost millions, where she acted as the notary.
Mrs. Peleki has stated that the former Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis and his office were fully aware of the exchange.  She later told reporters that she could not bear the fact that no one has taken the responsibility for a legal act that was initiated by Karamanlis’ ministers and government. At the end of the discussion she indicated that Mr. Rousopoulos and Mr. Aggelou were informed at the time. She added: “I was not expecting from a politician like Kostas Karamanlis to deny knowledge, I have four children and my professional career is ruined.”  One of Mr. Aggelou’s aids later stated: ‘’my associate has already testified what has occurred concerning the exchange, everything else that contradicts his statement is an absolute lie.’’ Mr. Rousopoulos’ comment was in the same reference.
Greek parliamentary committee summoned former Prime Minister to testify
Tonight a Greek parliamentary committee probing a real estate scandal has summoned former Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis to testify as a witness.
No date was set Tuesday for the appearance of the conservative former premier.  Karamanlis governed from 2004 until 2009.
The summoning of the former prime minister comes at a time when his successor Antonis Samaras is trying to rectify the repercussions of New Democracy’s past.  Samaras is also trying to boost its historically low figures in the polls.
