Greek Journalist Called Before Prosecutor Over Spyware Names

November 16, 2022

ATHENS – The Editor of the investigative news site Documento, Kostas Vaxevanis, was called to testify to a high court prosecutor over stories listing the names of 33 people he said were targets of spyware on their phones.

They included some members and ministers of the ruling New Democracy government as well as former premier Antonis Samaras and Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, who said he stood by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Supreme Court Prosecutor Isidoros Dogiakos began a probe after the story was released, the government earlier warning that any media which revealed details could face jail under new laws.

Vaxevanis had requested Dogiakos consolidate pending criminal cases that are being investigated individually – such as the case of PASOK-KINAL party leader Nikos Androulakis and those of journalists – who said they were targeted by spyware, which the government denied.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called on the voters to send a message of stability in the European Parliament elections on June 9, noting that the country has a stable four-year government and that political instability is "the last thing it needs".
