After Sunday's publications about the presence of a list of the names of 32 deputies who have become suspiciously rich, parliament chairman Evangelos Meimarakis visited the Prosecutor of the Supreme Court and asked him to investigate the matter in the fastest possible way.

According to publications, the Office for Combating Economic Crimes is investigating the deputies and Evangelos Meimarakis is among them. He declared that the leak of such information against specific politicians is creating political instability "at a time when the Greek parliament is preparing to take decisions crucial for the country's future."

A little later, Evangelos Meimarakis informed his deputies about his decision to transfer his mandate to them until the release of the report of the supervisory authorities. Then, he informed the party leaders about the content of his meeting with the Prosecutor of the Supreme Court.

The Parliament’s press centre stated that Evangelos Meimarakis denies any connection with the data contained in the publications.
