SYRIZA Calls on Prime Minister to Abolish Train Collision Investigation Committee

ATHENS – While “the entire country mourns its dead, the government is engaging in an unprecedented fiasco with the supposed ‘supra-party’ committee, as it is not possible for the auditee to appoint the auditor,” SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance party noted in an announcement on Saturday.

The main opposition party added that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ decision to set up a committee “appointed by him -and which will preempt the ongoing judicial investigation- is a direct interference in this judicial work, it involves pre-election expediencies, and is extremely suspicious.”

Moreover, Ziliaskopoulos’ withdrawal from the committee “after the storm of reactions does not change anything at all,” the party added.

Finally, Syriza called on the prime minister to “immediately abolish the committee and let judicial and other relevant authorities carry out their work and investigate the causes of the accident,” adding that “this time of tragedy does not allow for communication tactics.”
