Juncker, Trichet, Draghi, Lagarde, DSK & the other kids of MoU-block to testify in Greece’s Loan Agreements inquiry

Applaud! Excellent Idea! Former ruling and coalition government partner, Socialist PASOK proposes that all responsible for the two Memorandum of Understanding (Loan Agreements) and the Greek Bond swap (PSI) should testify in front of the parliamentary committee investigating the conditions and implementations of the agreements with the lenders.

In a long non-paper PASOK reacted to the SYRIZA proposal for Parliamentary inquiry on the Loan Agreements, noting that “this is an excellent opportunity to enter the debate at a historically and politically fair and rational basis.”

PASOK insists the inquiry does not covers only the time period from October 2009 to January 2015 but that it expands also backwards, to Kostas Karamanlis’ government (2004-2009) considering that also the causes of the economic crisis that led Greece to the lenders’ arms should be investigated.

PASOK’s proposal for witnesses to be questioned includes several Greek Prime Ministers, Finance Ministers, government coalition partners, high ranking officials like Insurance Funds governors – because of the PSI – but also former governor of Bank of Greece Giorgos Provopoulos.

How ever the proposals does not limit on national level responsible.

PASOK intends to invite all those in International Monetary Fund, European Commissioners, heads of Eurogroup, the European Central Bank top and the Euro Working Group, directors of EFSF, foreign advisers to Greek government, new stakeholders of Greek banks.

The list includes the names of

Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Christine Lagarde, Jean-Claude Juncker, Olli Rehn, Jean-Claude Trichet, Mario Draghi

and others from international institutions who were responsible for the Greek program, the bailout conditions, funding and negotiations.

In PASOK’s list there are at least 15-20 people who will have to come from abroad, stay in Athens for a couple of days (all expenses on Greek taxpayers’ money) and testify in front of the Parliamentary committee.

PS It could be quite expensive to host 20 people of exquisite taste and manners, isn’t it? But it would be fun to hear what they have to say 🙂

  1. well they will say noting or lying , as good politians doing usely.
    I read that Tsipras rejecting this investigation

  2. This inquiry should start from the time Papandreou let in the rockweillers of the Troika. PASOK aided and supported these attacks on Greek sovereignty and consequent de-humanisation of the Greek people. Therefore PASOK should not be defining the bounds of this potential inquiry. Evangelos himself is as guilty as Papandreou, Samaras and all the other apologists for the EU. Let these people stand trial for crimes against Greece and its people.
