Von Gabi Zimmer, Jürgen Klute
Following a last-minute decision from EP President Martin Schulz and Greek Prime Minister Samaras to postpone a delegation of Economic Affairs (ECON) committee MEPs to Greece, the GUE/NGL Group has condemned that this important visit has been pushed back. GUE/NGL MEP Jürgen Klute, who represents GUE/NGL in the enquiry team, commented: "By launching an enquiry into the work undertaken by the Troika, MEPs have assumed a crucial and delicate task. Since the start of the enquiry the European Council and the IMF have made it clear that they are not interested in democratic accountability and transparency. It is extremely unfortunate and disappointing for citizens that MEPs give in so quickly when faced with this type of blatant opposition to any form of investigation."
