The Chairman of the Council of State, Mr. Nikolaos Sakellariou announced his resignation.

At a press conference, Mr. Sakellariou attacked those that did not respect the judicial secrecy which, as he said, is an “unacceptable violation”.

Mr. Sakellariou, who announced that he was leaving his post before reaching the retirement age, also warned of the risk of a further reduction in pensions which will result in the complete deprivation of all pensioners.

At the same time, Mr. Sakellariou criticized the country’s political leadership for constantly leaving justice to resolve the country’s most troublesome problems.
