Tsipras Meets with Visiting EU Justice Commissioner Reynders

ATHENS – SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras met with visiting European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders at the party’s headquarters on Thursday.

In its press release, the main opposition party said they discussed “the serious challenges that exist in Greece, mainly regarding the low quality and speed of judicial services, people’s lack of trust in the administration of justice, the low number of judicial officers, delays in digitization and the logistical problems in the judicial sector.”

Tsipras also pointed out “the complete lack of progress in the investigation of prosecution authorities on the issue of wiretapping and malicious software,” the party added.

It was also noted that Tsipras mentioned that no investigation or search has been carried out at the offices of Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE), of rail infrastructure management company ErgOSE, or at the offices of train service providers Hellenic Train, after the tragic train collision at Tempi on February 28.


Despite being unable to prevent smugglers in Turkey from sending refugees and migrants to Greek islands and the northern land border along the Evros River, Greece has made significant progress in dealing with human trafficking, according to a report by the Council of Europe's Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).
