Jus­tice is pre­vail­ing

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek ju­di­cial au­thor­i­ties have been do­ing an ex­cel­lent job of in­ves­ti­gat­ing high-pro­file cor­rup­tion cases sys­tem­at­i­cally and with pro­fes­sion­al­ism, without cal­cu­lat­ing who they in­volve. This is a marked change in ap­proach that is very im­por­tant for Greece and will go a long way to­ward trans­form­ing it into a reg­u­lar Euro­pean coun­try. The in­ves­ti­ga­tions, whether they con­cern arms pro­cure­ment or shady bank­ing prac­tices, must go all the way, no mat­ter how high or how deep they reach. Greek so­ci­ety is in des­per­ate need of the kind of cathar­sis that only a re­vival of the sense that jus­tice is be­ing done can achieve. We must also re­mem­ber that be­hind all these in­ves­ti­ga­tions are judges, state em­ploy­ees and po­lice of­fi­cers who have seen their salaries slashed but con­tinue to do their duty to their coun­try re­gard­less of the cost.
