The serious allegations of binge drinking and scandals in Altamira, which were made on Thursday by the Parliament, the chairman of the Investigative Committee for the collapse of the Cooperation and former Supreme Court judge George Arestis, are leading to a debate in Parliament. Next Thursday, the chairman of the parliamentary Audit Committee and DIKO MP Zacharias Koulias is expected to register the issue, to be discussed on March 4 in the Committee.
According to Mr. Koulias, the issue of Altamira will be discussed in relation to the general issue of Cooperation, noting that the agreement reached by the Cooperation with Altamira and the procedures followed will be examined. He also said that the Audit Committee will have before it every 15 days issues related to the conclusion of the Research Committee. It is recalled that the day before yesterday, Mr. Arestis spoke about a big meal and an ongoing scandal against thousands of borrowers, involving Altamira. In fact, he had called on Parliament to intervene and consider the procedures followed by Altamira in assessing and selling loans.
