The Congressional Committee on Institutions and Transparency called a hearing on Thursday.

The committee called on current EYP director Themistoklis Demiris and former directors Panagiotis Kontoleon (who recently resigned), Yiannis Roubatis and Theodoros Daravillas. Appeal to prosecutors Vassiliki Vracho (who approved the tapping of Androurakis’ phone) and Konstantinos Tsaveras.
