Sakellaropoulou to Androulakis: Competent for monitoring are the Parliament, the Investigative Committee and the judiciary


“The case has already made its way before the authorities and the wish of all of us is for it to be completed and to bear fruit as soon as possible”, stressed the PtD

The president of PASOK – KINAL Nikos Androulakis had a meeting with the President of the Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

The issue of surveillance was raised, for which the PtD stated:

“It just came up issue of tracking your phone I pointed out the need for an immediate and complete clarification of the case. Given that this case concerns the functioning of the state and the prestige of democratic institutions, I placed myself clearly within the framework of my responsibilities from the outset. Mr. President, I am fully aware and aware of the limits of my position in accordance with the principle of separation of powers. On the subject competent in this case is the Parliament and the Commission of Inquiry and the judiciary to which you have applied. The case has already made its way before the authorities and the wish of all of us is for it to be completed and bear fruit as soon as possible. Any extension of this impasse is detrimental to our democracy. Your case highlighted in the most eloquent way the need for improvement in terms of legislation and good practices of the current legal framework and shielding of the EYP. In a modern rule of law any exception to communications privacy protection must be narrowly construed. And be subject to control and accountability.”

THE Nikos Androulakis then he said:

“The wiretapping issue is not a personal issue, it is a democracy issue and it must be closed without leaving any shadow in the political system and this is primarily the responsibility of the government.

I find it inconceivable that there are islands of state operation that some consider to be above justice and above parliamentary control.

An opportunity to further strengthen the independent authorities in our country. Their role is very crucial to ensure the rule of law…”
