No One Is Above the Law, Theodorikakos Says Regarding “Kivotos tou Kosmou”

November 20, 2022

ATHENS – “No one is above the law, whoever they are,” Citizen Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos said on SKAI television and later on Alpha TV on Sunday regarding the accusations of abuse levelled at the child welfare NGO “Kivotos tou Kosmou”.

He said the case will be fully investigated, as occurred in previous cases involving the abuse of a 12-year-old girl in Kolonos, or the author arrested for child pornography and other cases.

“There is absolute confidence in our prosecuting authorities, there is absolute confidence in our police officers who assist the work of judicial authorities. The truth will come out and if there are criminal acts, whoever the alleged culprits may be, they will go before justice,” Theodorikakos said.

“However much the revelations might shock us, the truth is preferable,” he added, noting that regional authorities who were responsible for monitoring such institutions should provide support, along with the rest of the state mechanism, to help protect vulnerable children.
