Not another cover-up

On top of the judicial investigation already under way there is also a probe by the state services to establish the extent to which undeclared funds have been transferred within the publishing world. Some are naturally trying to halt this investigation in order to keep secret the source of these huge funds or the identity of the traders. The country, after all, has a long tradition of covering up similar cases. The government must conduct an in-depth, painstaking investigation just as it did in the case of Zoniana, the lawless mountain village in Crete. This means that the authorities must protect the officials who are in charge of the case. The public wants to see answers, not another round of cover-ups and compromises. Given that outside interests are threatening to derail the process, the government must demonstrate that it intends to enforce the law whoever is involved in this controversial case.
