Syriza MPs call for parliamentary debate on Debt Committee report

Tuesday 23 June 2015

Request for the opening of a debate in plenary session of the Greek Parliament in connection with the results of work of the Truth Committee on the Public Debt. This request was presented by 49 Syriza MPs in the 24 hours which followed the public session of the committee on 18 June 2015.

The forty-nine Syriza MPs who signed the letter addressed to the Greek Parliament declare: “after the publication of the preliminary conclusions of the Truth Committee on the Public Debt of our country, according to which the greatest part of the debt is odious and illegitimate, our people cannot be held responsible for that, and moreover the debt is the result of the transformation of the crisis of the private banks into a crisis of the national debt into Greece, with the aim of saving the French and German banks”.

“We suggest that the proposal is cosigned so that a debate in a plenary session is opened in order to have a discussion on the results of the Truth Committee on the Public Debt of our country and to strengthen the demand and the fight of the government and the Greek people for the cancellation on greatest part of the debt”, underlined the Syriza MPs in their conclusions.
