Dendias on wiretapping: “The PM completely covered me — too much light would be shed



Greece’s former justice minister Stavros Dendias on Monday morning made his first public appearance since the news broke of an alleged political conspiracy against 10 public figures, including himself. In a wide-ranging interview with SKAI TV, Dendias claimed that he had been “completely covered” by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in the wake of the revelations and said that “a lot of light will be shed” on the matter in the coming days.

Dendias on wiretapping

In Greece, the minister of justice, Nikos Dendias, has announced that he will be investigating allegations that the prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, was involved in illegal wiretapping.

Dendias made the announcement during a parliamentary session on Wednesday, saying that “a lot of light will be shed” on the matter.

The allegations against Tsipras emerged last week, when it was revealed that a senior government official had been caught eavesdropping on conversations between Greek journalists and foreign diplomats.

Dendias said that he would be looking into whether or not Tsipras was aware of the illegal wiretapping and whether he had given orders for it to take place.

The opposition party, New Democracy, has called for Tsipras to resign over the scandal, with leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis saying that “the only way to restore confidence in our institutions is for Mr. Tsipras to step down immediately”.

The prime minister’s response

In the aftermath of the revelation that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was the target of wire taps by Turkish intelligence, Greeks were left wondering what his response would be.

Tsipras did not disappoint, giving a rousing speech in which he pledged to get to the bottom of the matter and hold those responsible accountable. He also promised to take whatever measures necessary to protect Greece’s national security.

The prime minister’s response was met with cheers from his supporters and reaffirmed Greece’s commitment to defend its sovereignty.

The public’s reaction

The public’s reaction to Dendias’ allegations has been largely negative. Many feel that the prime minister has betrayed their trust and that he is not fit to lead the country. Some have even called for his resignation.


Dendias’s comments on the wiretapping scandal are alarming, to say the least. It is clear that there is much more to this story than we know, and it is equally clear that Dendias is not happy with how the Prime Minister has handled the situation. With more light set to be shed on this scandal in the coming days, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
