Where there’s a will…

Greece?s justice system is sadly ailing from a plethora of chronic diseases that often render it incapable of responding to the increasing demands stemming from the present circumstances.

We have to admit, however, that there appears to be a new generation of prosecutors who are showing, in their professional and organized manner, what the justice system is really capable of when the right people are appointed to the right places and when there is a will to move things forward.

The investigation, for example, that led to the arrest of former Defense Minister Akis Tsochatzopoulos and his cohorts in connection with a large money-laundering racket, as well as yesterday?s intervention at the Halyvourgia steel plant, prove that there are prosecutors who are doing their jobs and are not afraid of any adverse reactions or fallout.

Hopefully, these prosecutors will be allowed to remain at their posts for a long time to come so that they can complete the probes into potentially massive political and economic scandals that are already under way.
