SYRIZA: Govt “Continuing to Hide List” of Media Companies Given State Money

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA on Friday repeated its demand that the government reveal the amounts of state support given to mass media companies and which media companies received them, accusing Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis of "continuing to hide the list with the sums received…despite the question and a request for the submission of the relevant documents made by SYRIZA's president."

The main opposition party accused the prime minister of "ducking" the request to reveal the sums given by "leaking sordid comparisons with what previous governments have done in order to gain time and massage the numbers."

"SYRIZA passed laws so that advertising spending, even that of banks, should be published so that there is full transparency. It neither handed out public funds to non-existent mass media companies, without even a single employee, nor illegally handed out money to sites not on the online media register, nor guiltily hid the list of where this money went," the party's announcement added.

It ended by asking the prime minister whether he would ask for the resignation of the government spokesperson or "cover for him, simply transferring him to another post, because everything he did was at the prime minister's orders."
