G. Kitsakos, who served as deputy general manager from December 2015 until November 2017, when he left with four other senior management, tried to explain his treatment of the long-standing industry of Kavala to the public company.
He spoke of "very intense" government interventionist " in the ELFE case, "without necessarily false ones," he added. As he argued for the industry, he had clear orders that, despite the large amount of his debts, should remain open and under what circumstances should not interrupt the supply of gas to the ELFE.
"Whether the administration of the administration is DEPA disastrous, the judiciary is now in charge of deciding," said energy minister George Stathakis, who approved the former DEPA executive.
For the unpleasant silence of Alexis Cypriot and the government despite the discovery of the scandal in DEPA, the ND is talking about new serious disclosures made by the former CEO of the company on Tuesday.
Mr. Kitsakos has participated in top government officials in the scandal, such as Dragasagis, Flambouraris, Stathakis, Pitsiorlas and Tzakri, saying they know about his manipulations that control the judiciary. ND asks for explanations and ministers appointed by the former executive director of the DEPA and the prime minister himself, warning the government to accentuate the case.
Analyzing is the publication of the ND
"Six days after the formulation of the question set by New Democracy concerning the criminal prosecution of crimes committed by SIRIZA, Mr Theodoros Kitsakos, for his actions during his mandate in the administration of DEPA, the Government continues to be silent.
"The most important discovery by Mr. Kitsakos that senior state officials, such as Mr. Dragasagis, Flambouraris, Stathakis, Pitsiorla and Tzakria, were familiar with his manipulations and actions already controlled by Greek justice, irrefutably reveal Mr. Tsipras and emphasized the heavy responsibilities of the government.
"The said ministers can not hide and must have a direct view of what Mr. Kitsakos condemns.
"For example, did the ministers appointed by Mr Kitsakos be acquainted with ELFE's attempts to illegally exchange ELFE assets against the write-off of their DEPA debts and why they allowed the ELFE to debit DEPA, damaging DEPA with tens of millions euro.
"They must also apologize why Mr. Kitsakos, who was a member of the ELFE, was appointed DEPA's Executive Director, for whom the ELFE owed a huge sum.
"The Government of Mr. Cypriot will be absolutely sure that the New Democracy will show this scandalous affair and, together with all citizens, seek truth and responsibility as far as possible."

"The ND has unprecedented wealth, since ELFE sales and the creation of a tens of millions of DEPA debt came in his days," the energy minister said, responding to the main opposition.
"Today's government inherited the situation that it tried to manage in the best possible way. In proposing a defense of DEPA's interest even after first securing the re-establishment of labor relations with ELFE, the government, in cooperation with ELFE creditors, requested a more permanent solution for the reorganization of" , said Stathakis.
"Mr Kitsakos' mandate in the DEPA administration has ruled on his decision to replace him. plans for the exchange of real estate they never continued because they did not have the approval of political leadership. Regarding ELFE's debt, the policy was to keep the current payments strictly and not create new debts. Whether administration management is detrimental to DEPA is now in charge of the judiciary.
The most durable solution is the ELFE Reconstruction Plan, which means government jobs and debt solution for all creditors, including banks. From time to time, various plans are being considered without any consensus, "said the Minister of Energy.
"For the privatization of DEPA, government policy is reflected in agreement with the institutions, which envisages the purchase of Shell's stake in Attica by DEPA, the withdrawal of DEPA from the retail sector of Thessaloniki and the subsequent separation of DEPA from DEPA, which will be privatized and DEPA infrastructure, which includes all gas networks in the country and which will remain under public control, "he concludes.
