Jus­tice Min­is­ter Haris Kas­tani­dis said yes­ter­day that he did not ob­ject to the pub­li­ca­tion of the names of dozens of re­tired MPs who are try­ing to claim a com­bined to­tal of some 80 mil­lion eu­ros in back pay and pen­sion pay­ments. “I do not have any ob­jec­tion to the names be­ing made pub­lic,” Kas­tani­dis said, not­ing how­ever that he did not have the list of the deputies in ques­tion and that only the Coun­cil of Au­dit had those de­tails. The for­mer lawmakers are bas­ing their legal ac­tion on a law passed in 2008 which ruled that MPs should re­ceive equal pay to the salaries of the coun­try’s top judges.
