The proposal on the establishment of a special parliamentary committee for the preliminary investigation of Novartis case was presented to the Greek Parliament, signed by the parliamentary groups of SYRIZA and ANEL. The proposal will be discussed in the Parliament next week.

 

The government is committed to making the truth shine, stressed Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday, in his speech to the parliamentary group of SYRIZA. The Greek State will claim damages from Novartis, he added. New Democracy President Kyriakos Mitsotakis accepted the government proposal on the establishment of a preliminary investigation committee, however he once again said that this is a case of political prosecution. The rest parties of the opposition also stand in favor of the establishment of such committee.
