Tak­ing back what’s stolen

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A large group of pub­lic pros­e­cu­tors and state of­fi­cials (com­ing from var­i­ous de­part­ments) have been work­ing on ma­jor cor­rup­tion cases. Of course it is their duty to do so, yet their ac­tions are dis­tin­guished by a high level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism and driven by their sense of com­mitt­ment for safe­guard­ing the pub­lic in­ter­est. Their mis­sion is not easy, as their ef­forts to make jus­tice pre­vail are so of­ten hin­dered by strong in­ter­est groups. How­ever, re­cent de­vel­op­ments have con­firmed that the coun­try’s au­thor­i­ties have the abil­ity to trace the source of il­le­gal money and in­ves­ti­gate com­pli­cated cases. Their ac­tions of­fer some com­fort to the peo­ple, who de­mand fair­ness. It is all the more sat­is­fy­ing when au­thor­i­ties ac­tu­ally man­age to get the stolen money back into pub­lic cof­fers.
