Eight years for Siemens, six days for the Golden Dawn - The message of N. G. Michaloliakos
s announced, following the Appeals Court Prosecutor Bri's investigation, 64 people were named to go to trial for the Siemens scandal. Not one of them is in custody! The investigation by the prosecutor lasted eight long years, and yet with Golden Dawn they came out with a finding and took into custody our Members of Parliament in only six days!
Note that the two main defendants, Christoforakos and Karavelas have fled the country with the kind permission of the Greek authorities...
Christoforakos even lives free in Germany. Not a word of course for the fact that there have been reports in the German press with Christoforakos' name on the list, which is in the hands of the German authorities, that contains the other names of Greek politicians who took bribes from Siemens.
Recall that the damage suffered by the Greek government by the scandals of Siemens amounts to two billion euros according to the findings of its own parliament. The same parliament which received the votes of ND MPs and PASOK to arrive at an extrajudicial settlement for the sum of two hundred million euros, or just one-tenth of the total loss. And these two hundred million still have not been paid ... The great irony was that a part of the amount would be made available to give the Siemens company special seminars against corruption!
Of the 64 defendants, most of them who are Siemens employees including Germans, it's very doubtful they will stand trial in Greece, and of course the second class players with not one politician other than the already politically finished Tsoukatos.
Remember in Christoforakos' notes there were plans to bribe political parties and to finance a small right-wing parliamentary party. At that time there was only one party with these characteristics and it was none other than the "Political Spring," the defunct party of the current Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.
As for Tsoukatos, he is accused of going to PASOK to skim 1,000,000 marks from the black money of Siemens.
The question is: If Tsoukatos who funneled the money is accused then why aren't those who took the money, such as the treasurer and the president of PASOK also accused?
Remember that on Friday, September 27, 2013, the day before the arrest and imprisonment of members of the Golden Dawn, the Golden Dawn had filed a motion to the Supreme Court asking for PASOK to be prosecuted as a criminal organization for scandals like that of Siemens.
The report went on record and now Members of the Golden Dawn are in prison...
