  • [01] Report on hospitals points to violation of procurement code; Simitis will not testify in Siemens case

    Inspections around the country conducted by the health inspectors' corps at the request of a parliamentary committee investigating the Siemens kickbacks and bribery case showed that a number of violations in the state procurements code, and specifically in supply contracts between state hospitals and the German multinational.

    According to a report, there are indications of possible financial damage to the state, given that many times the cost of maintenance and spare parts was not included as a criterion in the signing of contracts.

    Meanwhile, the chairman of the parliamentary committee probing the Siemens affair, PASOK MP Sifis Valyrakis, stated on Wednesday that former prime minister and PASOK president Costas Simitis will not be summoned to testify.

    Valyrakis opined that there is not enough evidence to support a decision to request information from Simitis and his successor as premier, Costas Karamanlis.

    The statement was made after the main opposition New Democracy (ND) party expressed a position against requesting Simitis' testimony.
