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.

In one case, he brought up on screen the Gmail account of a man described as the “ assistant of an important guy ” in the general election in Kenya, which was days away. “ Today if someone has a Gmail, it means they have much more than just email, ” Hanan said as he clicked through the target’s emails, draft folders, contacts and drives.

European antiwar protests gain strength as NATO’s Ukraine proxy war escalates

Europeans are storming the streets in unprecedented numbers to protest NATO’s proxy war in Ukraine and their own declining living standards. The Grayzone has covered demonstrations and interviewed protest leaders in several countries since the war erupted.   by Stavroula Pabst and Max Blumenthal   Part 1   This February 21, several thousand Greeks filled Athens’ streets to denounce NATO and the United States in the wake of Antony Blinken’s Greece visit, where the US Secretary of State applauded the Mediterranean country for being amongst the first European countries to support Ukraine, thus leading to way for “ the support of democracy. ” It was just one action among many protest actions across the continent as the NATO proxy conflict in Ukraine approached  its first anniversary. European citizens are growing agitated as their leaders appear set on extending the war at least another year: they’ve approved several rounds of sanctions on Russia, provided billions of euros in assistance t

State surveillance and court cases: The lonely fight for press freedom of Greece’s independent media

by Alessio Giussani   Part 2 - Greek 'mafia' and 'Watergate' Athens-based investigative outlet Reporters United disclosed in January that a high-ranking police officer had been promoted while being investigated in a corruption case called “Greek Mafia” – something journalists in the field had known for a long time, Leontopoulos claimed. It was not the only time a major story remained unreported for months. At the beginning of 2022, Reporters United revealed that a controversial change in the law on the privacy of communications had been made nine months earlier. The amendment, introduced last minute into a pandemic containment bill, prevented citizens from being informed if they had been placed under state surveillance for national security reasons. At the time, the wiretapping scandal that later became known as “Greek Watergate” was yet to emerge. “ Many jurists and well-networked journalists had known about the amendment for months, and we found out some had even info

When privatisation kills

DiEM25   Last week, a devastating train collision in Greece claimed at least 57 lives, the latest stain on the record of the EU’s most dangerous rail network. In the Greek parliament, MeRA25 blamed the lack of safety on the privatization of the country’s railways. The state-owned train operator was sold for a measly 45 million euros to a bankrupt Italian company at the height of Greece’s debt crisis, in a sell-off of public assets masterminded by the EU and the country’s other creditors. How do the waves of privatization of public services across Europe impact the state's ability to provide basic needs and keep citizens safe? And how can we prevent tragedies like the Greek rail disaster from happening again?     Related:   Nationalize railways now!

Journalists using conventional methods have struggled to shed light on the disinformation industry, which is at pains to avoid detection. The secretly filmed meetings, which took place between July and December 2022, therefore provide a rare window into the mechanics of disinformation for hire. Three journalists – from Radio France, Haaretz and TheMarker – approached Team Jorge pretending to be consultants working on behalf of a p

Nationalize railways now!

globinfo freexchange   Greece suffered the worst train crash disaster in its history. The frequency of serious accidents in the railways network increased when the country was forced to privatize parts of the previously fully state-owned railways.    The privatizations came after the Greek default in 2010, when the Troika of Greece's creditors demanded mass privatizations in every sector.   This resulted in the fragmentation of the railways services among private companies, leaving the network under public control. It's pretty much the same model implemented in the UK. There, after the privatization and fragmentation of the British railways among private companies, serious problems emerged, with accidents and safety issues occurring more frequently.   Of course the Greek case turned out to be much worse because most privatizations were actually sell-outs carried out under the extreme pressure of the creditors with which foreign and local interests were connected.   Private in

Revealed: Britain secretly turned non-aligned Cyprus into a key NATO asset
