Greece not behind leak, minister says
The Greek government has brushed off suggestions that the government may be connected to the publication of a transcript of an apparently secretly recorded telephone conversation between IMF officials discussing the Greek bailout.
“Greece has no reason to leak or wiretap [conversations],” junior Defense Minister Dimitris Vitsas said on Monday.
“The most well-protected people in the country at the moment are the members of the negotiating team,” Vitsas said. “We provide them with the best possible treatment.”
In a letter to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras late Sunday, IMF managing director Christine Lagarde urged the Greek government to “ensure an environment that respects the privacy of their internal discussions and take all necessary steps to guarantee their personal safety.”
