ND leader Mitsotakis: Rule of law in Greece under threat

New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday that the rule of law in Greece is under threat.

In a tweet he posted directly in English, the main opposition leader referred to statements by the alternate minister of Health on the Novartis drug investigation and to the furlough of November 17 terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas, who was seen walking around Athens.

“Rule of law in Greece is under threat. Prosecutors involved in Novartis case are publicly threatened by top Minister. Convicted terrorist Koufodinas, on his 6th furlough, takes a walk in Athens. The next elections will be about the economy, but also the quality of our democracy,” Mitsotakis said.
