  • [01] PASOK letter to Christoforakos' lawyer

    Main opposition PASOK party secretary Yiannis Ragoussis has addressed a letter to German attorney Stefan Kursawe, the counsel for one-time Siemens Hellas CEO Michalis Christoforakos, requesting all evidence the latter alleges is in his possession and that concerns PASOK.

    Ragoussis, in his letter, cites a decision of PASOK party leader George Papandreou, to request the information.

    "Following this statement of yours and despite the fact that you refer exclusively to the New Democracy party, which has avoided accepting your aforesaid public invitation, PASOK calls on you, publicly, to respond to your commitment, providing all evidence and proof that your client alleges is in his possession and concerns PASOK and, in any case, everything that has been brought to the attention of German Justice," Ragoussis' letter states.

    [02] PASOK letter to Christoforakos' lawyer (adds ND reax)

    Main opposition PASOK party secretary Yiannis Ragoussis has addressed a letter to German attorney Stefan Kursawe, the counsel for one-time Siemens Hellas CEO Michalis Christoforakos, requesting all evidence the latter alleges is in his possession and that concerns PASOK.

    Ragoussis, in his letter, cites a decision of PASOK party leader George Papandreou, to request the information.

    "Following this statement of yours and despite the fact that you refer exclusively to the New Democracy party, which has avoided accepting your aforesaid public invitation, PASOK calls on you, publicly, to respond to your commitment, providing all evidence and proof that your client alleges is in his possession and concerns PASOK and, in any case, everything that has been brought to the attention of German Justice," Ragoussis' letter states.

    New Democracy

    Ruling New Democracy party Secretary Lefteris Zagoritis, referring to the Siemens affair, responded on Tuesday that "ND will not open a dialogue with the defendant, who must make his plea before justice, to testify about everything and about everybody, so that his allegations can be checked."

    Zagoritis also accused the main opposition PASOK party of "wishing to conceal its guilt through correspondence."

    He further said that "all are aware of all that has been confessed by one-time high-ranking PASOK cadre Theodoros Tsoukatos regarding the inflow of money from the 'black' funds of Siemens."

    Zagoritis further said that "if PASOK wishes to conceal its guilt through correspondence, or it thinks that it will deceive anyone in this way, it is mistaken. Public opinion is aware that during PASOK governments the controversial scheduled contracts and agreements amounting to billions were signed."
