The Supreme Court has ordered an investigation into claims by the Greek Communist Party (KKE) on Thursday that the telephones at its central headquarters in Perissos have been wiretapped, as it frequently experiences crossed lines, notably involving the office phones of other parties.
The government said that it will investigate the “very serious” claims.
KKE said that the problem has been experienced so many times that it could not be explained away as a coincidence, insisting something more sinister was at play, like wiretapping.
“In recent days there have been repeated nuisances in the call center of the KKE headquarters, listen-ins by third parties, including the call centers of SYRIZA, New Democracy and To Potami,” the KKE said.
According to a statement issued by the party, the alleged wiretapping was being conducted by “an unknown center.”
New Democracy said it was “inconceivable that phone conversations of political parties or individuals are being tapped” and demanding immediate investigation.
