It has been revealed Greece’s Public Power Corporation (PPC) purchased energy trading company EDS belonging to the Deputy Prime Minister of FYROM for 5 million euros, two months before the Prespes Agreement between the two countries.
Opposition Party New Democracy (ND) has criticised the Tsipras government and demanded details on the deal and who gave the ‘political order’ to proceed in view of the agreement on the FYROM name issue.
ND’s Vassilis Kikilias called on the government spokesman to reveal who gave PPC’s management the political orders to buy EDS for 5.0 million euros from their Deputy Prime Minister given the timing.
Kikilias noted that PPC had been at risk of defaulting 2-3 times in the last year and had no money to pay its employees.
“Two months before the Prespes agreement, they secretly gave the Deputy Prime Minister of the government in Skopje a 5 million-euro gift via PPC. This can only happen if there are political orders. The issue is major, extremely serious and needs to be investigated immediately, starting today,” he stressed.
