Commission’s move sets an example

The decision by the Capital Market Commission to shut down the Acropolis stockbroker firm and, most importantly, to submit additional evidence to what has so far been presented in the lawsuit against the controversial company underscores the government’s pledge to bring any graft-related information to the prosecutor. Given the significance of the pension fund scandal and its fallout on Greece’s public life, yesterday’s developments should set an example for all those involved in the investigation of the case. It’s worth noting that the Capital Market Commission has found evidence of Acropolis wrongdoing to the expense of the funds during the 2002-2003 period – in other words at a time when the country was in the hands of the PASOK socialists, who now style themselves as guardians of the insured.
