President Sakellaropoulou Stresses Need for Radical Reforms in Justice Issues

January 17, 2023

ATHENS – “For one to be able to find solutions (to the issues of Justice) radical reforms are needed and not small changes and adjustments. But reforms need consent, need bravery and mutual concessions,” President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Monday during the meeting held at the Presidential Mansion, with representatives of the justice sector.

Sakellaropoulou referred to the problems that the Greek judiciary has been facing over time and noted that both due to her previous capacity, as a judge for 40 years, and her current one, she has the duty to raise the issue of the need for dialogue on the issues of Justice.

Because, as she noted, “the issues concerning Justice do not all require the intervention of the legislator, but many can be dealt with within the framework of the current legislative framework,” and she pointed out that “all the bodies of Justice must be willing to reflect and to cooperate.”


ATHENS - Almost nine years after being on the brink of being pushed out of the Eurozone and its economy shrinking 25 percent, Greece’s unlikely comeback is continuing, with a 3 percent growth forecast for 2024.
