EU Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos on Monday filed a motion with a relevant supreme court deputy prosecutor demanding that the names of three “protected witnesses” who provided controversial testimony in a local investigation into Novartis’ Greek subsidiary be revealed.

One of three such “protected witnesses” – essentially anonymous witnesses – implicated, over the course of three months of testimony, two former prime ministers and eight former health ministers in a kickbacks and bribery scheme allegedly run by Novartis Greece. Avramopoulos was one of the former health ministers, all serving in governments before the current and poll-trailing leftist-rightist coalition government came to power in January 2015.

In his motion, Avramopoulos referred to the trio of witnesses as “hooded perjurers”.

“… I will exhaust every legal means at my disposal to uncover this conspiracy against me, which is based solely on two hooded perjurers,” he stated.
