Balkans |  The Greek government goes to a vote of confidence because of the wiretapping scandal

In Greece, the leader of the main opposition party, the Alliance of the Radical Left (Syriza), Alexis Tsipras, proposed a vote of confidence for the government.

Tsipras, who raised the wiretapping scandal that has occupied the country’s agenda for months, alleged in his speech in parliament that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his government were the “culprits” in the wiretapping scandal.

Noting that Tsipras, Mitsotakis and the government bear not only political but heavy personal and legal responsibilities, “It is dangerous for the country’s security, democracy and human rights that those who turn our national security into a listening area remain in the administration of the country.” He said.

Tsipras, who argued that it would be revealed whether or not citizens trust the government, continued as follows:

“After all that has happened and the evidence has come out, this government cannot stand still for a second because we want Greece to be a European state of law. The prime minister cannot remain in office even for a day. For these reasons, we propose a vote of confidence against the Mitsotakis government as the first step on the road to Our people to protect democracy, transparency and justice.”

Tsipras claimed that journalists, MPs of the European Parliament, leader of the opposition Movement for Change party Nikos Androuulakis, ministers, businessmen and members of the armed forces were heard, and in the file seen after his meeting with the Communications Security. Directorate officials said yesterday that there is data on the hearings.

Tsipras, who argued that Mitsotakis was responsible for these wiretaps, said: “He organized this network not only to obtain useful information for his political rivals, political friends, economic agents, military commanders, and journalists, but to detain and blackmail them. This network was organized with very serious planning From the moment I came under the administration of the country.” Use phrases.

Voting is scheduled for Friday.

The wiretapping scandal in Greece surfaced in April 2022, after the discovery of “predatory” spyware on the mobile phone of Greek journalist Thanassis Kokakis.

In the news in the Greek media, the phones of several important politicians, bureaucrats, journalists and businessmen were allegedly wiretapped, including former Prime Minister Andonis Samaras, Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, and Chief of the General Staff Konstandanos Floros.
