Greek Government Committed to Clearing the Siemens Scandal



varoufakis“The government is committed politically, morally and legally to fully clear out all aspects of the Siemens scandal,” Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said on Thursday in a statement referring to recent developments concerning this issue.

“During the discussion two days ago in the Council of State on the extrajudicial settlement with Siemens, the Judge of the State Legal Council, who represented the Greek government, did not ask for the consultation of the political leadership on this issue.

In any case, the aim of the Finance ministry is to fully restore the economic and moral damage the Greek government has suffered. The legal assistance of the German authorities for the activities of Siemens in Greece will help this effort. We are working in this direction,” concluded Varoufakis.
