Opposition PASOK-Movement for Change leader Nikos Androulakis on Wednesday expressed indirect but clear support for the president of the Hellenic Authority for Communication Security and Privacy (ADAE) Christos Rammos regarding the criticism directed towards him. Androulakis said that it was "inconceivable to target people who are working for independent authorities and citizens' rights in such a brutal manner".
Androulakis said that it was "unthinkable in a European society, for someone who fails to serve the narrative and proposals of central government to be morally and politically attacked. This is not a normal European political system."
Outlining the dilemma facing voters in the next general elections, he added: "Either [you are] with those who are capable of anything provided they get a position power at the expense of the public interest and democratic institutions or with those who are willing to sacrifice everything for social peace, prosperity and respect for human rights in the country".
