Greek pros­e­cu­tors yes­ter­day for­warded to Par­lia­ment three case files re­lat­ing to two mem­bers of the cur­rent cab­i­net and for­mer fi­nance min­is­ter Ya­nis Varo­ufakis.

The file against Varo­ufakis fol­lows a le­gal suit that was lodged against him for high trea­son in con­nec­tion with his de­ci­sions dur­ing his term as fi­nance min­is­ter last year which led to po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic up­heaval and, ul­ti­mately, the sign­ing of a third bailout for Greece.

The other two case files sent to Par­lia­ment are against Health Min­is­ter An­dreas Xan­thos and Al­ter­nate Health Min­is­ter Pav­los Po­lakis for vi­o­la­tion of duty in con­nec­tion with state hos­pi­tals in Kozani which, lo­cal res­i­dents claim, are un­able to deal with emer­gency cases due to un­der­staffing.

Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment will be called upon to vote on whether the par­lia­men­tary im­mu­nity of the three politi­cians should be lifted.
