PM’s of­fice pleads ig­no­rance over wealth form claim

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The prime min­is­ter’s of­fice yesterday de­nied knowl­edge of al­le­ga­tions that two serv­ing min­is­ters failed to de­clare as­sets in their deriva­tion of wealth (“pothen es­ches”) forms.

One is al­leged not to have in­cluded a bank de­posit of some 1 mil­lion eu­ros, and the other did not list his shares in a pri­vate com­pany. Re­ports did not iden­tify the min­is­ters in ques­tion. Sources close to Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras said they had no knowl­edge of who the al­le­ga­tions con­cern and noted that a par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee is tasked with check­ing all the wealth forms sub­mit­ted by min­is­ters and MPs.

“There must not be any dis­tinc­tion and all the facts must be made public,” said SYRIZA’s par­lia­men­tary spokesman Sokratis Famel­los.
