Varo­ufakis open to probe.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

For­mer fi­nance min­is­ter Ya­nis Varo­ufakis said yes­ter­day that he is open to any form of in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the gov­ern­ment’s ac­tiv­i­ties in the first half of 2015 that led to the im­po­si­tion of cap­i­tal con­trols in Greece. Speak­ing to 989 FM ra­dio yes­ter­day, he said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion could be in the form of a special court, a com­mit­tee or a mil­i­tary court so that “pa­pers can placed on the ta­ble.” Last week, New Democ­racy re­peated its call for a par­lia­men­tary in­ves­ti­ga­tion fol­low­ing a re­port in Kathimerini with ad­di­tional de­tails about Varo­ufakis’s plans for a par­al­lel cur­rency as elu­ci­dated by his ex-ad­viser Glenn Kim. Varo­ufakis de­fended the plan, say­ing he had sub­mit­ted it to Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras, as early as 2012, in­sist­ing it was an al­ter­na­tive plan in case ne­go­ti­a­tions with the coun­try’s cred­i­tors broke down.
