Wor­ry­ing al­le­ga­tions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

We can only hope that the ac­cu­sa­tions be­ing made by a num­ber of of­fi­cials and ex­ec­u­tives in­volved in the scan­dals that have emerged over the past few days in re­gard to arms pro­cure­ments are not true as far as for­mer high-rank­ing mil­i­tary of­fi­cers are con­cerned. It would come as a huge shock to Greek so­ci­ety to learn that be­yond the politi­cians that have al­ready been im­pli­cated in shady arms deals, im­por­tant fig­ures in the coun­try’s armed forces have also been in­volved in un­der­handed prac­tices and ac­cepted kick­backs. The in­for­ma­tion that has al­legedly come out needs to be han­dled with cau­tion so that ju­di­cial au­thor­i­ties can get on with the job of ei­ther con­firm­ing or re­ject­ing it. If, how­ever, th­ese al­le­ga­tions are proved to be true, it will prove that the rot of cor­rup­tion has eaten into ev­ery in­sti­tu­tional pil­lar of this coun­try.
