  • [01] Minister of State Flambouraris calls on politicians to bring their money back to the country

    Minister of State Alekos Flambouraris on Tuesday, in statements to SKAI TV, called on all politicians and non politicians to bring their money back to Greece.

    "We are giving a fight for existence and even one euro matters in that fight," Flambouraris underlined. He clarified though that "being the prime minister's advisor and transferring your money abroad to avoid tax audits is one thing and having your money abroad since 1912 is quite another."

    As for privatisations, he said that "we are not selling off our assets ... we are improving some terms in contracts already underway." As for regional airports, he claimed that the tender has not yet been concluded, adding that "14 airports cannot be sold as a package to a company whose major shareholder is a German state company."

    On the former Elliniko airport, Flambouraris said that there is a relevant study for its development with moderate growth. "I have talked about its development with the participation of the Greek State, we have the land, the others have the money, we can concede it and split the profit 50/50 percent," he underlined.

    Regarding the Public Power Corporation (PPC), he said: "Whoever wants to set up a unit or networks, he is free to do so, but we cannot sell PPC."

    "We are optimistic that we will receive the financing from our allies ... and that we will not find ourselves at an impasse ... we will not sit with folded hands ," he added following daily Kathimerini's report on contacts with Chinese funds and on T-bills.

    Flambouraris spoke of "truce" with the Eurogroup and added: "We cannot play with that issue ... They have to understand that they cannot continue this policy, I think that this has started being made understandable, gradually, they cannot change instantly."

    "We cannot have austerity measures, only taxes on high incomes," he stressed.
