Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras launched an attack against opposition parties New Democracy and PASOK during a speech in parliament on Tuesday, saying that when they were in power they failed to tackle corruption and economic scandals, thus making public opinion “immune” to the numerous cases of kickbacks and squandering of public money.

Parliament is debating the establishment of a preliminary Committee to conduct a preliminary investigation into former PASOK minister Yiannos Papantoniou, focusing on armament programs carried out while he was head of country’s defence ministry in the early 2000s.

“While we have the majority in this parliament, and we will have it for many more years, we will not let anything go uninvestigated,” he said, adding that all corruption cases will we followed up until they conclude.
