A fierce denunciation that could trigger a political earthquake was made by Yianis Varoufakis, who, during a live broadcast of a TV Channel of Thessaly, revealed that the innermost circle of Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ family owns shares in funds that buy non-performing loans from Greek banks.

On Tuesday, during a live interview on Thessalia TV Channel, the general secretary of the MeRA25 party made the following statement: “ At such times, the greek government is borrowing €12 billion and, instead of investing in the national health system, supporting farmers and stockbreeders or helping construction workers and lawyers, it will actually borrow the money from the ESM to give it to the Delaware and New Jersey funds, in which the innermost circle of the Mitsotakis family owns shares, of course. I’m sorry to say this, but I have to. It may sound tough, but it is true though.”

The claims of Yianis Varoufakis remain to be proven.

Yianis Varoufakis’ disclosure in detail:

“ The most important – and this demonstrates the government’s criminal negligence- is a law that was passed in December, called ‘Hercules’, which entitles the funds that buy people’s non-performing loans, if they do not receive the money that borrowers owe them for three consecutive months, to ask Mr. Mitsotakis and Mr. Staikouras for €12 billion, which the State certainly does not have.

You know where the State will find the money: It will borrow it from the Troika to give it to the funds. Good grief! At such times, the Greek government is borrowing €12 billion and, instead of investing in the national health system, supporting farmers and stockbreeders or helping construction workers and lawyers, it will actually borrow the money from the ESM to give it to the Delaware and New Jersey funds, in which the innermost circle of the Mitsotakis family owns shares, of course. I’m sorry to say this, but I have to. It may sound tough, but it is true though.

A legislative decree must be passed immediately to ‘freeze’ the ‘Hercules’ law, Mr. Mitsotakis. Otherwise, you will be under suspicion.

Why should we support these funds with new public debt?”
