“It is our policy as a Legal Service to limit as much as possible public statements about ongoing investigations.”

They were not informed about the transmission of the police file on the case of the Holy Monastery of Saint Avvakum, the General Prosecutor said today, while adding that a meeting has been planned which will take place in the next few days on this particular issue, answering questions from journalists, on the sidelines of a conference at the Administrative Law co-organized by the Parliamentarianism and Participatory Democracy Foundation of the House of Representatives, in collaboration with the Academy of the Legal Service of the Republic.

Asked whether a police file has been sent to the Legal Service in relation to the case of the Monastery of St. Avvakum, Mr. Savvidis stated that although he himself read today's publication that he wants such a file to be sent to the Legal Service within the week, so far he has not receive any update. He noted, however, that he will know more about the matter after the scheduled meeting he has convened in his Office within the next few days.

In relation to the ongoing police investigations regarding the Monastery of St. Avvakum, Mr. Savvidis stated that “this is a very broad issue, which covers various aspects. It is our policy as a Legal Service to limit public statements about ongoing investigations as much as possible. What I can tell you, however, is that now that the different levels and the criminal investigators we appointed have had the opportunity to carry out some work, within days I intend – and we have already invited all the investigators and investigators – to hold a meeting at the Legal Service , so we can assess where the issue is so far.”

“The decision is political” on multiple pension bills

When asked to refer to the issue of multiple pensions and where it is headed, the Attorney General replied that it is a political decision, however, care must be taken in any legislative regulation that occurs, so that it is not unconstitutional. “Some bills have been drawn up by the Ministry of Finance in consultation with the Legal Service, which has carried out their legal technical control. Beyond that, the issue is political. If the Parliament disagrees with the philosophy of the legislation and proposes something else, it is a matter that does not concern the Legal Service. It concerns the State, the executive power and the legislative power. What is important to mention, is that based on the issued decisions of the Supreme Court, it is not so easy to make such arrangements that affect pensions, which have already crystallized. Therefore, we must be careful in the legislative regulation, so that it does not collide with unconstitutional provisions again”, he said.

Commenting finally on today's conference on Administrative Law, which was co-organized by the House of Representatives and the Academy of the Legal Service , Mr. Savvidis noted that the cumulative participation of both speakers and participants shows the importance of the conference. “This is a very interesting conference related to Administrative Law. Distinguished speakers from Greece have been invited to it. I am particularly happy that this conference is co-organized by the Academy of the Legal Service and the House of Representatives, with which, from the first moment of assuming our duties with the Assistant Attorney General of the Republic, we wanted to strengthen our relations. Today's event is part of this framework,” he said characteristically.
