Greece: government braces for clash over 'Lagarde list'

03 January, 10:42

(ANSAmed) - ATHENS, JANUARY 3 - The war of words between the Greek coalition government and SYRIZA (radical left) over the alleged doctoring of the 'Lagarde list' of over 2,000 Greek depositors with Swiss bank accounts intensified on Wednesday, with government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou accusing the leftist opposition of "political opportunism" and SYRIZA officials suggesting that a parliamentary probe should not be restricted to former Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou.

The comments by Kedikoglou, who also accused SYRIZA of "trampling over the fundamentals of rule of law," came amid rumors that the party's proposal for the creation of a parliamentary committee would look to the indictment of socialist PASOK chief Evangelos Venizelos, who succeeded Papaconstantinou, as well as the latter.

The leftists, who are expected to unveil their proposal tomorrow, are also expected to criticize current Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras.
