On the occasion of the International Day against Corruption, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Wednesday received the head of Transparency International Greece, Costas Bakouros, at the presidential mansion.
Pavlopoulos described corruption as the most dangerous enemy to democracy. Apart from the huge devastating economic consequences, it tries to smash the three pillars of democracy, the three powers — the legislative, the executive and the judicial.
“It is time we realized that the fight against corruption and in favor of transparency is common for all of us. It is a matter of mentality of a whole society, which we have to consolidate in order to defend our country,” the president noted.
