In yesterday's lengthy announcement, the Audit Office sends the message to many recipients that it will not consent to decisions that will harm the public interest regarding the regasification terminal in Vassiliko, will not contribute to the success of the effort to blackmail the state by force financial and other interests and also that she is not willing to accept to be asked for the rest from the government, since the Service had warned since the end of 2019 that there were serious problems in the process of selecting the consortium for the project in Vasiliko and the government did not take it into account.
The announcement of the Audit Office was issued to comment on a Saturday article in the newspaper “Politis”, through which the dilemma was formed “Either we pay the 25 million euros to the Chinese, as an additional amount for an increase in raw materials, and the project is progressing in Vasiliko with annual benefit of 1.5 billion euros (an amount that is disputed by many), or we start from the beginning “.
