Varoufakis Calls for Sacking of Citizen Protection Minister Theodorikakos

ATHENS – On Friday, following his testimony to an examining magistrate regarding the assault against him in Exarchia, Yanis Varoufakis, the leader of the opposition MeRA25 party, called for the removal of Citizen Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos from office in his remarks to reporters.

Varoufakis criticized Theodorikakos for “appointing himself examining magistrate, prosecutor, judge, and jury,” and leaking information about the investigation. He stated that such behavior is unacceptable in a democratic society and undermines the judicial process.

The MeRA25 secretary confirmed that Varoufakis testified about the attack and would allow justice to take its course.

Varoufakis also accused Theodorikakos of creating conditions for violence during the demonstrations in Athens on Thursday, which he believes were motivated by electoral concerns.

Overall, Varoufakis expressed his concern about political interference in the justice system and his belief that Theodorikakos’ actions are a threat to democracy.
