The General Inspector for Public Administration Maria Papaspyrou on Wednesday flatly denied that she had ever handled a case involving any person related to Alternate Health Minister Pavlos Polakis, in a statement to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.
She was replying to a claim made by main opposition New Democracy Vice President Adonis Georgiadis in Parliament, who said she had a report concerning the death of a four-year-old child during an operation at a hospital in Crete, in which one of the doctors was related to Polakis, "locked in her drawer".
"At no time have I had a case of a relative of Alternate Health Minister Pavlos Polakis. Tomorrow I will search and find out where this case is exactly. As I was told, the Health and Welfare Services Inspectors' Corps (SEYYP) has it and tomorrow I will know the details. I note that there is a General Inspectors at the head of SEYYP. As everyone knows, I am General Inspector of Public Administration," Papaspyrou said.
