ND wants preliminary inquiry into Kouroublis, Xanthos and Polakis


Greece’s conservative opposition was to submit on Tuesday a proposal for the formation of an investigative committee to conduct a preliminary inquiry into whether former health ministers Panagiotis Kouroublis and Andreas Xanthos, as well as alternate Health Minister Pavlos Polakis, are guilty of breaches of faith.

New Democracy said that, according to the case file submitted to Parliament by the Supreme Court prosecutor, among the matters that need to be investigated is the pricing of medicines which resulted in the rise of annual pharmaceutical spending in 2015, during the tenure of Kouroublis at the health ministry.
