    [02] Parliament probe of ex-minister

    (ANA-MPA) -- The proposal tabled by 112 ruling PASOK deputies on the establishment of an investigating committee to probe possible responsibilities of former PASOK minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos in purchase of three German-made submarines was accepted by the Parliamentary plenum on Thursday with 226 votes in favour and nine against.

    The decision was taken with a secret ballot in which 250 deputies voted, while the Parliamentary group of the Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.O.S) party (15 deputies) did not participate, having withdrawn from the process earlier along with five deputies of the newly formed Democratic Alliance. Nine "present" votes were also cast, as well as one blank and five invalid ones. (ANA-MPA)
