The investigation into the allegations made by Independent Greeks MP Pavlos Haikalis last week is set to conclude on Monday, with the prosecution presumably having determined whether there is adequate proof of bribery.
The latest information suggest that the investigators will not request a privacy lift in order to investigate the telephone records of Giorgos Apostolopoulos, the man whom Mr. Haikalis claims acted as a middleman.
According to article 236 of the penal code, the promise of a bribe constitutes a criminal offense in itself. The prosecutors decided to expedite the investigation as it may affect the Presidential election.
The president of the Independent Greeks Panos Kammenos refused to comment when asked to comment on Mr. Apostolopoulos’ personality.
