Tsipras Meets with SATA Board, Comments on UBER Scandal

ΑΤΗΕΝS – Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras, in statements after meeting the board of the Attica taxi drivers’ union on Wednesday, sternly attacked Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the government following the revelations of an international corruption scandal involving UBER, regarding the stance that had been adopted by the New Democracy party on this issue when it had been in the opposition.

According to party sources, Tsipras referred to a “vindication,” and noted that “now a thread is unraveling and we begin to understand many things about what happened in the past.” He pointed out that “the company used unfair practices, bribed political figures, ministers, journalists in order to impose a change in the legal framework in Europe and prevail over the taxi drivers”.
