Responsibilities for omissions during July 23 fires are ‘specific’, ND tells government

Main opposition New Democracy on Monday accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of employing communications gimmicks and emphasised that responsibility for the mistakes and omissions during the Attica fires on July 23 were “specific” and demanded that someone be held accountable.

“It took a whole week after the national tragedy for Mr. Tsipras to visit Mati like a thief and in an absolutely protected environment,” the main opposition noted in an announcement, stressing that citizens were no longer persuaded by cheap PR tricks.

“They demand to know the whole truth and how so many human lives were senselessly lost. Mr. Tsipras must realise that there are specific responsibilities for the mistakes and omissions of July 23, for which someone must be held accountable,” the announcement added.
