Lawsuit for ”treason” against MP’s who voted the Memorandum, reaches the Greek Parliament
A lawsuit of a doctor from Evia, Dimitri Antoniou, against the MPs who voted the Memorandum is about to be discussed in the Greek parliament.
The case has reached the Greek Supreme Court and was referred to the Parliament, which is empowered to judge on matters relating to its members. Some of the politicians listed in the pages of the lawsuit have served as ministers. In this case there is a special law for the “liability” of ministers.
Mr. Anthoniou says he knows that he will not find 30 MPs to sign up for the prosecution of the parliament members but he believes that “this is irrelevant because the prosecution right is transferred to the next Parliaments” as this type of crime can not be barred.
In addition, Mr. Antoniou says that the complaint was forwarded to the parliament after passing rigorous prosecution of three filters, which rejected the initial proposal of the prosecutor for archiving the case.
The announcement is located on page 42 of the Minutes of the plenary discussion and you can watch it at the video:
