The answer to the 57 families is not hatred but structural reform to what hurts us, emphasized in his speech ND MP, D. Markopoulos who was the chairman of the commission of inquiry for “the investigation of the crime of Tempe”.

As he said, the committee’s work was not easy but it was “a long foot in the sorrow and pain of these families” although there were some who presented us, roughly, as anthropomorphic monsters. We are also parents and I remember the colleagues of the majority asking and having real anxiety, said Mr. Markopoulos.

Addressing personally to the leader of the Freedom Movement, Mr. Markopoulos called on her to stop political hooliganism and the trade in pain: “You have a monopoly on hate, Ms. Konstantopoulou. You are a merchant and contractor of pain. Do you want to say about the government and about the prime minister, who rushed to Larissa from the first moment with a crash, what was his concern? To hide, as if he were a murderer, the evidence? Possible; And are you serious politicians? We defended the truth” underlined Mr. Markopoulos.

At the same time, he spoke about some who saw the case of Tempe “as a revenge. They saw it as a “come back” of irrationality and conspiracy theories.” He also said that “some are now invoking Europe. Who; Those who in 2015, when we, with other political forces, were trying to keep Greece in Europe, they wanted to take us out of Europe. And now they even want European intervention. No one has a monopoly on pain in this room. We all hurt,” repeated Mr. Markopoulos.

“You are not in a downhill, you are the downhill. A political hooligan who does not respect this sacred space of the parliament…” commented Mr. Markopoulos.

He also said that as a parent he would not turn a blind eye if he felt there was something fishy: “As a parent I watched the exam and not as a politician. And if I have made some human mistakes, I apologize” added the ND MP.

From her side the head of Freedom of Navigation, Zoe Konstantopoulou, spoke of the “shameful presence before the plenary session of the president of the examination, Mr. Markopoulos. That you engage in such methods in parliament and attempt to silence anyone who dares to defend the victims, which the government opposed when you decided that as an advocate for the victims’ families I was your enemy and should be excluded because my mere presence was a threat to you, you have shown it just like a while ago I found that there were MPs from your party who walked out during your speech because they are not comfortable with the work you are doing.. You were chosen by the government who are capable of everything for the cover up! You were chosen by the government who is capable of everything for the cover-up! You were chosen by Mr. Mitsotakis, who is represented here by Voridis, a minister who did not vote for your government’s n/s, who has served as Minister of Transport and has interests in the investigations”

Mrs. Konstantopoulou, in fact, invited the prime minister to come to the Parliament, giving a deadline until the time of her main speech, which is expected at 5:30 p.m. today, so that, as she said, he would apologize.

“Mr. Mitsotakis does not only have a political responsibility, he also has a criminal responsibility and he must, since you took care to protect him, come to the Parliament for an apology, I invite him to do so and I am waiting for him”
