Union hits out at gov’t over ‘im­proper’ ac­cu­sa­tions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Less than a week af­ter mak­ing a sim­i­lar com­plaint against the govern­ment, the union rep­re­sent­ing the coun­try’s judges yes­ter­day is­sued a state­ment con­demn­ing “im­proper, slan­der­ous and in­ap­pro­pri­ate ex­pres­sions” by Al­ter­nate Health Min­is­ter Pav­los Po­lakis. Specif­i­cally, the union took is­sue with the lat­est dig by Po­lakis against the Greek ju­di­ciary in which he ac­cuses them of want­ing to avoid sub­mit­ting their source of wealth (pothen es­ches) dec­la­ra­tions. The union clar­i­fied that judges have lodged a le­gal ap­peal against cer­tain pro­vi­sions of the law but have not re­fused to sub­mit their forms. The state­ment fol­lowed one on Fri­day ex­press­ing anger over re­cent com­ments by Al­ter­nate Jus­tice Min­is­ter Dim­itris Pa­pan­gelopou­los and Po­lakis ac­cus­ing judges of turn­ing a blind eye to cor­rup­tion.
