Oikonomou: Responsibilities Will Be Sought at All Levels

ATHENS – “Responsibilities will be sought at all levels and there will be no cover-up,” government spokesperson Yiannis Oikonomou said in an interview with SKAI TV, underlining that this is “our basic obligation in the face of this unspeakable tragedy, for the people who are burying their relatives, the victims who have passed, the people who were left behind.”

He said that the investigation by justice is ongoing, that there is a Committee of experts that will conduct an administrative and technical assessment of the case, and that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has asked justice to look into all the aspects of the case without delay.

“It is our obligation to do everything in our power to prevent it from happening again. Our priority is first to give answers to society and secondly to take action – immediate and medium- to long-term – so that things will be significantly and substantially improved and it is certain that something like this will not happen again,” Oikonomou underlined.


Terrified tourists who had to walk along beaches to flee wildfires on the popular island of Rhodes in the summer of 2023 can go back there for vacations now, partly paid by the New Democracy government eager to keep foreign arrivals coming this year.
