The preferential referral of State Minister and Alekos Flabouraris and Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis to further audits by accountants decided the “Asset Means Declaration” committee of the House.

According to a briefing made by the Committee Chairman, Giorgos Varemenos, regarding the Stathakis case, after its own amending statements, there were significant deviations from his original official statement of “Asset Means Declaration”, which is not only limited to EUR 1 mln that was known up to now.

Varemenos stressed that deviations were found on other bank deposits and holdings, as well as in real estate.

The “Asset Means Declaration” committee decided to entrust to auditors the further control by any means necessary, even with opening bank accounts.
