Parliament to Decide Whether to Prosecute Former Minister Pappas

ATHENS — Parliament is to vote on whether to accept a proposal by a preliminary parliamentary investigative committee for the prosecution of former minister Nikos Pappas over the television licences process of 2016 in a plenary session on Wednesday.

The session began on Wednesday and is expected to conclude at 19:00 with a confidential vote.

In order to pass, the proposal needs an absolute majority of all MPs. If the proposal is adopted, parliament will then launch a process of setting up a Special Court to try the case, in accordance with the law on ministerial responsibility and the constitution.
