A parliamentary debate on whether an inquiry should be launched to investigate Defense Minister Panos Kammenos’s alleged intervention in the Noor 1 heroin case has been postponed, House speaker Nikos Voutsis said Friday.

The decision to postpone the debate came after a request by conservative opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis in the wake of a powerful earthquake that killed two people on the Aegean island of Kos Friday morning.

No new date has been set for the debate.
