In Greece, the leader of the main opposition party, the Alliance of the Radical Left (SYRIZA), Alexis Tsipras, has requested access to wiretapping orders issued in the past three years from the Presidency of Communications Security (ADAE).
Tsipras visited ADAE and met with the head of the institution in connection with the wiretapping scandal in the country.
Speaking to members of the press after the meeting, Tsipras said, “Coming today to the ADAE, from the president of the institution, as political leader and leader of the main opposition, as provided by law, to politicians, ministers, MPs, MEPs, journalists and judges signed in the last three years. I have asked to see the decisions regarding the personnel of the armed forces.” He said.
The wiretapping scandal in Greece surfaced in April after the mobile phone of Greek journalist Thanassis Kokakis discovered spyware.
News in the Greek media claimed that the phones of several important politicians, bureaucrats, journalists and businessmen had been “wiretapped”, including former Prime Minister Andonis Samaras, Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and Chief of the General Staff Konstandanos Floros.
