Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee that over­saw an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the fi­nanc­ing of po­lit­i­cal parties and me­dia or­ga­ni­za­tions by Greek banks has been con­cluded with­out find­ing ev­i­dence to sup­port criminal al­le­ga­tions against spe­cific politi­cians.

The de­vel­op­ment, which means that no pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry com­mit­tee will be set up, was an­nounced to the me­dia yes­ter­day by SYRIZA rap­por­teur Spy­ros Lap­pas as the re­port was sub­mit­ted to po­lit­i­cal parties. With re­gard to Kathimerini SA, the re­port gave the com­pany a clean bill of health, say­ing it was con­sis­tent with re­gard to its com­mit­ments to its lenders and that it has no over­due ar­rears.

The head of the panel, Ha­nia MP An­to­nis Balom­e­nakis, is to re­lease a sum­mary of the re­port on Mon­day be­fore sub­mit­ting the full doc­u­ment to Par­lia­ment Speaker Nikos Vout­sis on Jan­uary 23.
