  • [01] PASOK on Siemens affair

  • [01] PASOK on Siemens affair

    A main opposition PASOK party spokesman on Monday left open the possibility of PASOK "taking initiatives" for the tabling a proposal regarding "favourable treatment" for one-time Siemens Hellas CEO Michalis Christoforakos, "or anyone else who will produce evidence upon the opening of Parliament or during some other summer recess committee."

    PASOK spokesman George Papaconstantinou reiterated a proposal on "everything and the entire flow of money to light" and stressed that "the citizens are realising that the government's political time is up: resorting to the polls is the salvation, since a change in course is urgent."

    Papaconstantinou replied in the affirmative to a press question of whether PASOK guarantees that it did not receive financial support from Siemens during the period when current MP and former minister Costas Geitonas was PASOK's treasurer or when George Papandreou became the party president.

    Asked whether he maintains that no Siemens money entered PASOK's coffers or whether merely that Papandreou was unaware of such a development, Papaconstantinou said "we have no evidence whatsoever over (Siemens) money funneled to PASOK's coffers."

    Finally, in answer to another press question, Papaconstantinou stated that "we are here to listen to his (Christoforakos) evidence ... evidence is that which clearly links funding with persons and parties."
