Foreign Ministry Denies Media Reports of Untranslated Documents in Siemens Trial

siemensMedia reports claiming that the trial of suspects in the OTE-Siemens scandal was postponed on Tuesday for an indefinite period because of crucial material that had not been translated for the foreign defendants, are “false and unsubstantiated,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Earlier today, the three-member Felony Appeals Court accepted the objections of foreign defendants who underlined that the non-delivery of the charge sheet in their native language, as the international law provides for, renders it invalid.
“Despite its work overload, the Foreign Ministry’s Translating Service completed in time the massive, 1,580-page translation and promptly delivered the relevant decree to the Appeals Prosecution. Specifically, the first 700 translated pages were delivered on 02.11.2015 and the remaining 880 pages, on 13.05.2016,” the Foreign Ministry said.
“Despite this fact, some people today circulated unsubstantiated information on an alleged delay in translating the ruling on the Siemens case by the Translation Service of the Foreign Ministry. The ministry calls on the competent judicial authorities to identify and attribute responsibility to those who maliciously and deliberately spread false and unsubstantiated information,” the ministry concluded.
