The truth must come out now

The resignations tendered by two prosecutors in charge of investigating cases of a financial nature is an issue of major political concern. The Greek judiciary needs to act swiftly and without further delay invite them to present any possible facts regarding interference by politicians or other public figures in relation to their investigations.

This is an issue of prime importance which must not be allowed to linger and provoke public suspicion. The two prosecutors have already referred to pressure exerted by vested interests which prevented them from investigating pivotal cases. They must reveal names and addresses.

Meanwhile, there are those who claim that the prosecutors exaggerated the allegations and in a number of cases started prosecution proceedings without the necessary substantiation of charges.

Whatever the case might be, the truth must come out because public opinion will no longer tolerate the burial of scandals or the substitution of serious judicial investigation by insinuations and reproduced articles.

It?s now up to the judiciary to get to the bottom of this.
