PM’s Tsipras press office reacts to Samaras’ lawsuit

“Former Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is persecuted only by his past. We advise him to also sue that,” the prime minister’s press office said on Thursday, in response to Samaras’ lawsuit against the prime minister and his statements.

Earlier in the day, Samaras filed a lawsuit against Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras for the involvement of Samaras’ name in Novartis case investigation.

Samaras accused Tsipras of being personally responsible for a “sordid conspiracy” that was being set up, while noting that this was “cobbled together so badly that it is collapsing on its own.”
