Special committee on Greek debt is formed

House Speaker Zoe Constantopoulou on Tuesday announced the formation of a committee whose purpose will be to audit the country’s public debt. MEP Sofia Sakorafa and Belgian political scientist and public debt expert Eric Toussaint will be on the new committee.

The committee, which is expected to ask for the assistance of local and international institutions, is a “minimum debt toward society and the European community in order for the truth to be revealed and for justice to be served,” noted Constantopoulou.

A first meeting is scheduled to take place in Athens in early April, while initial findings could be presented at an international conference in June, she said.
