Varoufakis’ Approved Plan B Included Hacking and Hijacking

varoufakisWiretapped tax identification numbers, hacking, secret accounts for each Greek taxpayer and banks that could operate with euros but instantly change to a drachma-based system were just some of the surreal proposals included in former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis’ Plan B. According to an article published in Greek newspaper “Kathimerini” on Sunday, Varoufakis had allegedly revealed his plans to foreign hedge fund executives during an international forum held on July 16.

The former Greek Finance Minister included several… not so legal measures in his Plan B, such as hacking and hijacking. According to Varoufakis, he had drawn up the infamous Plan B after he received orders from Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

Varoufakis’ Plan B did not include a Grexit option, however it also did not exclude it, noted “Kathimerini.” He was planning to create “a parallel payment system that would operate using wiretapped tax registration numbers and could eventually work as a parallel banking system.”

He worked with a small team to prepare the plan, which would have required a staff of 1,000 to implement but did not get the final go-ahead from Tsipras to proceed, noted the newspaper. His plan was to hijack the taxpayers’ and corporations’ tax identification numbers by hacking into the General Secretariat of Public Revenue website. This would allow the creation of a parallel system that could operate if banks were forced to close and which would allow payments to be made between third parties and the state, and could eventually lead to the creation of a parallel banking system, according to Varoufakis.

When he was informed that his speech was being recorded and asked what he would do if it got out, Varoufakis did not hesitate to say that he would deny everything.

Varoufakis plans to establish a European Alliance

Meanwhile, the former Greek Finance Minister plans to establish a European Alliance that will be composed of representatives from various political currents, including Christian Democrats from Berlin, according to his recent interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel.

The Alliance “will not have a party structure but will be a movement” composed of all the people who wish to “revive” democracy in Europe. 


  1. Interesting. I knew this guy was a criminal. He still committed a crime. It’s called conspiracy. It will be interesting to see what the U.S. F.B.I., and U.S Justice Dept thinks about all this, along with Varoufakis’s hacking friend in the U.S..

    This guy is as dumb as it gets. He can’t help himself, and keep his mouth shut. He just admitted to committing a crime. Yes, the U.S. does have jurisdiction over this, as Varoufakis’s friend was doing the hacking from the U.S.. As a former judge, I would issue an arrest warrant for both Varoufakis, and his hacker friend. There is criminal reciprocity between Greece, and the U.S.. This could be interesting, and fun to watch.

  2. Yes lets critisise him for making preparations for the worst.
    He should of known that only responsible politicians operate totally unprepared………

  3. There was NO Plan B. Suddenly Varoufakis pulls a hat out of a rabbit proposing methods similar to Reischfuhrer Himmler’s Kristallnacht. Many condemn Xrisi Avyi’s policies but here is proof the Left is the biggest threat to people’s freedom.

  4. Papadopoulos and his cronies spent the final years of their lives in jail, in order to make an example for future generations.
    Varoufakis has done much more harm to Greece than the colonels, bringing on immeasurable suffering to the people and the country’s reputation abroad. History will judge him accordingly, I hope the judiciary also one day.

  5. You are right. The Colonels brought electricity, roads and telephones to the villages. All SYRIZA has brought us is Migrants, taxes and more austerity.

  6. you were a judge a founder of a company that had 12000 employees and CEO of several , in your owns words, mulit billion $ companies. oh yea and a fighter pilot. LOL LOL LOL sure buddy

  7. What rubbish – if the ECB cannot work out how much Euros are held in European, non – Greek banks, and acknowledge these cash assets as Greek – the issue of E 40 billion capital flight would be academic.
    Greek depositors learnt from the Cypriot experience any cash or near cash holding of over Euro 100,000 would have had at least a 30% haircut
    Europe does not really understand or manage macroeconomics in single currency, multiple player zone, very well
    If you think he is a criminal, I will type out a list of Greeks, Germans and Americans who have really messed up Greece from 1974.
    Worse still, there are still some on Parliament who are hankering to do their greedy thing again!!
