Greek First Lady to Sue Syriza MP for Slander

Mitsowife 1

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has called for the lifting of parliamentary immunity for SYRIZA MP Elena Akrita after she allegedly made defamatory remarks about the Prime Minister's wife, Mareva Grabowski-Mitsotaki, in a social media post.

Mitsotakis's press office accused Akrita of defamation, urging for her immunity to be lifted to allow legal action against her. They asserted that Grabowski-Mitsotaki would pursue legal recourse to restore the truth about her character.

“Mareva Grabowski-Mitsotaki will take the necessary legal action [against Akrita] in the immediate future in accordance with civil and criminal law to restore the truth about her personality,” the press office said in a statement.


Akrita defended her post as purely political and challenged Grabowski-Mitsotaki to sue her. She expressed readiness to face any legal consequences and demanded to know why the threat of legal action came from the Prime Minister's office.

The controversial Facebook post by Akrita accused Grabowski-Mitsotaki of undisclosed property ownership, questionable business dealings, and misuse of her partner's official position. It also alleged communication between Grabowski-Mitsotaki and influential figures, including shipowner and publisher Evangelos Marinakis.

However, Marinakis denied the claims published in Estia newspaper, which alleged his communication with Grabowski-Mitsotaki. The newspaper also asserted government involvement in the visit of state officials to Marinakis's residence, a claim refuted by government spokesperson Pavlos Marinakis.
