While Germany and France demand Greek submission over their debt repayment programme, the country’s austerity measures paid to bailout French and German banks, Zoi Konstantopoulou, president of the Hellenic Parliament, stated during her address in Athens, Wednesday.
The House President went on to say that the Truth Commission to Audit the Greek Debt did justice to the Greek people and those who warned that debt programme imposed by the intuitions known as the Troika (IMF, ECB, EU), calling the measures “illegal, illicit, offensive, and in any case, unsustainable.”
Konstantopoulou is the founder of the Truth Commission to Audit the Greek Debt, which aims to unearth the purported violations of democracy and human rights in Greece caused by the forced application of austerity measures by the institutions.
Zoi Konstantopoulou, President of the Hellenic Parliament (Greek): "Germany and France demand Greece’s submission and the repayment of a contested debt. However, they hide the fact that the so-called bailout program didn’t save the Greek people, but French and German banks - and this is one of the indisputable facts which were revealed and documented as part of the preliminary results of the commission."
Zoi Konstantopoulou, President of the Hellenic Parliament (Greek): "The preliminary findings of the Truth Commission to Audit Public Debt do full justice to the citizens who disputed the obligation to contribute to repaying this debt. They do full justice to those who, early enough and before the destruction of the memoranda went into full swing, warned that these debts and these loans are not legal. They are illegal, illicit, offensive and, in any case, unsustainable."
