The Greek ‘Watergate' is getting huge as new bombshell revelations indicate that Mitsotakis regime was spying even some of its top executives!
The Greek “Watergate” (as described by international media), caused a political earthquake in Greece when, about two months ago, it was revealed that the secret services bugged the phone of Greek socialist opposition leader and MEP Nikos Androulakis.
Well, it seems that this was just the tip of the iceberg. New bombshell revelations show that there is a very long list of people whose phones have been bugged, among them some top executives of Mitsotakis regime itself!
Top investigate journalist Kostas Vaxevanis (who has been targeted by the regime for his exclusive revelations around regime's big corruption scandals), has published today, in Sunday's edition of his paper Documento, a list of names whose cellphones have been infiltrated by the Israeli-made Predator spyware.
A partial list, as seen on the paper’s front page, includes Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, former Conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, former minister, under both socialist and conservative governments, Michalis Chrysochoidis, the wife of current Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis, former Syriza government spokeswoman and minister Olga Gerovasili, and Alexis Papachelas, executive editor of Kathimerini newspaper.
As reported by Politico:
“Documento is set to publish a long list of persons targeted with Predator. Buckle up,” tweeted MEP Sophie in ‘t Veld, who is the rapporteur of the European Parliament’s PEGA Committee investigating the use of spyware in the EU. “Government ministers. Hello EU Commission are we paying attention? Another case of EU institutions being directly affected by spyware.”
In the meantime, another report by the independent investigative website “Inside Story” said that in the days before the PEGA Committee’s arrival in Athens, an FBI team from the U.S. was in the Greek capital to investigate how far the illegal surveillance software has spread and who trafficked it.
Mitsotakis administration has evolved into one of the most corrupt regimes in Greece ever.
