Iliopoulos: Amendment Granting Scientists’ Committee Immunity an Admission of Guilt

ATHENS — A government amendment granting immunity from prosecution to the epidemiologists on the government's pandemic committees was "an admission of guilt", main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said on radio "Sto Kokkino" on Friday.

"It is an admission that there are things that need to be hidden," he said, underlining that the amendment concerned three committees that also included politicians. "In reality, the government wants to protects political figures and does not want members of the committees to be forced to come out and say that there was interference in their work from politicians. It is no accident that the amendment comes a few days after sections of the minutes from the committee meetings were revealed," Iliopoulos stressed.

"The decisions on the management of the pandemic are policies and concern the government," Iliopoulos underlined, adding that "the government's authoritarianism has turned the pandemic crisis into a crisis of democracy".

On the opening of tourism he said that the major tour operators have already announced the date when tourism will open. "We have a prime minister who sole concern, for a long time now, has been to sell a success story".
