  • [01] PASOK leader has meeting on environment

  • [01] PASOK leader has meeting on environment

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou met on Thursday with Andreas A. Papandreou, who is a member of the organising committee of an international conference on climate changes and energy security, to be held in Athens on October 14.

    Andreas A. Papandreou told reporters after the meeting that had briefed the PASOK leader, who is also his brother, on the conference which is organised under the auspices of President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias, noting that "dealing with climate change is a moral obligation for all politicians and all political forces."

    He also confirmed that the PASOK leader will be present at the conference. Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis has also confirmed his itention to attend the same conference, after a meeting he had with A. Papandreou earlier this week.

    In an another development, the party's spokesman Petros Efthymiou on Thursday expressed confidence that "justice, honouring its independence, will not restrict its investigation on the bonds issue to what the government wants, meaning to one bond and four social insurance funds."

    Efthymiou raised once again the issue of political responsibilities, saying that "particularly after the deposition to the Parliamentary Economic and Social Affairs Committee by JP Morgan's official Mr. Stott, this issue is pending and, indeed, in an open way now."

    He claimed that political responsibilities fall on Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis, Deputy Finance Minister Petros Doukas and Finance Ministry secretary general George Kouris, as well as on former labour minister Savvas Tsitouridis and former labour ministry secretary Papadopoulos and the reponsibility falls on the prime minister for all of them together.

    Efthymiou termed JP Morgan "a participant and accomplice in the apparatus for the issuing of the sinful bond" and added that now "it is a participant and accomplice in the cover-up operation."

    Asked whether the bonds issue is the beginning and the end of PASOK's election tactic, Efthymiou said that the party's election tactic has been shaped ever since it called for elections for five reasons and the bonds issue is not included among them.
