SYRIZA's Iliopoulos says government has political responsibility for Lignadis case

Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance's spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said that the prime minister bore "significant political responsibilities for the Dimitris Lignadis case," in an interview with Kontra Channel late on Monday.

Iliopoulos stated that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis must provide answers on "who gave the order for his appointment," but also about "who gave the order for a cover up," after allegations were made against him and why it took so long to bring these to the attention of justice.

He also noted that the prime minister must say "that the investigation into all the questions concerning Mr. Lignadis's past will have to proceed quickly."
