SYRIZA Decries Payments via Direct Assignment to Aide “Close to PM”

October 27, 2022

ATHENS – “Day by day, the looting of public funds by the ‘blue locusts’ of the Mitsotakis government is revealed in its full extent,” main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance said in an announcement on Thursday.

“While the revelations regarding the MP Patsis are still unfolding, another case of the wasting of public funds by persons close to the Prime Minister comes to the light. The company of Rebecca Pitsika appears to have received, via direct assignments, over 400,000 euros from ELTA, ERT and ADMIE,” the main opposition party said, claiming that company owner is Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ “close associate and advisor.”

According to SYRIZA, Pitsika was a “personal choice” of the prime minister and yet another official who appears to have exploited her position to gain from the public coffers.


ATHENS - A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the electric grid networks of Greece and Egypt, known as the Greece-Africa Power Interconnector (GAP), was signed in Athens by Houston-based McDermott International and Athens-based Eunice Energy Group.
