The editor of the Kontra News daily Emilios Liatsos was quizzed for about an hour and a half over a recent report, according to which bribes were being collected for MPs to vote in favor of a President.

After questioning, Mr. Liatsos commented that he was “pleased” that the investigation had been launched and stated he cited journalistic confidentiality, but estimated that his source “was absolutely credible”.

Mr. Liatsos was summoned by the prosecutor to testify after SYRIZA spokesman Panos Skourletis recently cited the newspaper report in Parliament.
